I’ve used this site to date a few old Garcia Mitchell reels. I just picked up an oldie from an old gentleman selling all his old Zecbo 33’s on the side of the road. I immediately decided that he had nothing I was interested in, and started to leave, when I spied an old 302 saltwater rod and reel in the back of his truck. I bought it! My problem is that I can’t find a serial number on it to date it correctly. The patent number is 2.726.052. Any help dating this reel would be greatly appreciated.

BoFinn, :sSig_welcome4: to the Mitchell Reel Museum. You've come to the right place for all things vintage Mitchell spinning reels!

Unfortunately, there is no documented dating chart for the 302 series. Though, if you provide the serial number stamped onto either the bottom of the foot (six or seven numerals) or the back plate (starts with A, B, C or D followed by five digits), we can get close to yr of manufacture...photos work too...
