I have what appears to be an early Garcia Mitchell 300, the serial number is A215365. Can this be dated from that number??

Hello fishingkev,

Welcome to the forum.
Indeed it can. There's a great page on dating the 300's in the header of the page. Just click on "Dating" & you'll find an excellent chart going back to the beginning of the 300's. Per your s/n, your reel would have been made in 1971. Great pieces of equipment.

Best wishes
