Reid,

Interesting spreadsheet! the oops, I think I found is with a 3rd version half bail. I think it should be serial # is on either foot or housing, not foot & housing. I will leave to the reel experts to tell otherwise.

Cheers!

Regards, Scott

Hi Scott

That word “expert” scares the hell out of me, almost put me off answering.

When serial numbers first appeared they were on the foot but there were also many half bails with the serial number on the housing. The lowest housing number I have found so far is A72114.

Kind regards Roy

Thanks, I will make corrections.
I also noticed in another post that It was said that after sn 190816 1953, was when cross wind became standard, so will make that correction also, showing 51-52 C series, having level wind as standard

What years was the option of crosswind or level wind offered?

Regards, Reid

Hi Reid

Lets be clear about this, I didn't say that 190816 was when cross wind became standard.
What I said was that all the ones that I have seen after 190816 were crosswind. Below that number I have recorded both cross wind and level wind.

Please understand that this is based on the small sample of 40 or 50 reels from that period that I have actually had in my hand and recorded the details.

Remember also that gears are easy to change.

Kind regards Roy

Understood Roy, thanks!

I was trying to compile how they came from factory, not accounting for people switching them out.

In fact I recently acquired a '69, that has what looks like the Jan Haanstra cross wind main gear
My '68 has the normal looking cross wind in it

Sorry I'm so behind the times on information, just been at collecting Mitchell reels for a short while, beg for patience please

thanks for all help!

Regards, Reid

Reid,
Your chart shows a "test 4" reel made 50-52 with a low and high serial number range. I have one that has a serial number B24148,
so there may be some latitude to that range.
Ted

Hello Chocalate7,

Yes is probably the answer, but leave some room for a little overlap. Based on the # of documented reels this is what the spreadsheet leads us to believe. Cheers

Regards, Scott
