Noodle,
I'm sure most everyone has been disappointed with a purchase.
It pays to not make any assumptions.

Noodle,
Other than most of the bail being missing, and not having a spool, am I missing anything?

Looks like the baffle plate is in upside down

Noodle,
I can't tell about the baffle plate in the picture, but I am getting a bit long in the tooth. Is it grease, or is the end of the axle made of brass? Just curious.

I love the teeth on the axle gear

I'm no spring chicken either Ted. Looking at the picture of the bail arm it appears that it is an A series reel. If I remember correctly,
some of the A series reels had a brass axle, but I think it was just the reels produced in Taiwan.
I think the Taiwan reels also had a black hex nut but then again my memory ain't what it used to be :blush

I don't buy the Taiwan reels but got one in a box of reels I bought so it gave me a chance to compare to the originals.

It's hard to tell but it almost looks like there is some sand mixed in with the grease
