I also have a reel that i am having trouble dating, I do believe that it is a 3rd version 300, but it has a very low SN 10099, also it has the #5 on the foot. pleas go to my album and you can see the photos of the reel. Thank all of you for your assistance.LON

Hi Lon,

Welcome to the group!  Your serial # B10099 dates your reel to 1950 to 1952.  The letter B helps date your reel.  Looks to be in very nice shape, congrats on your find, or heirloom.  Hopefully you might find time to peruse the site.  There is really alot of wonderful information here to enjoy. 
Good luck1

Regards, Scott

Scott, Why is the handle different from most of the others during the 1950s era? also does the #5 on the foot mean anything? I am new at this.Thanks again.
