Hi Mcmilligan,

It would be your best bet to try and purchase a complete reel whether its for use or collection these reels have file marks which stem from when they were assembled by hand, putting a different side plate on a different body may give you sharp unpainted edges around the reel body even let water and moisture get into the internals of your reel. Its a good way of finding out if your early version reels are authentic as the file marks show through the paintwork and leave a matching impression on both body and side plate, just like 2 pieces of a jigsaw puzzle.
Hope this helps.

Regards Martin
