I was just gifted a Mitchell 300 and 300A. I was wanting to pin a date down on the 300. I have attached a photo. Thanks

Hello Gullable, First let me say :sSig_welcome4: to the Mitchell reel museum . I think first of all some sort of mgnification is needed to help see the ser. no. better. Also I know some of the Mates sprinkle talcum or baby powder on ,then wipe off the excess and see if that helps,you should be able too see it a little clearer. There are times that you can't make out all the numbers at all. Maybe one of the Mates has another method and I'm sure you'll hear from someone if they do. I myself have a few reels that I can't make out the full number.Hope I helped you some, best regards, John in Pa. :sCh_fisherman:

Thanks for the advice. I will give it a shot. Plan on opening them up for the first time tonight. I have never performed maintenance and feel quite confident after watching Wallace's video a dozen times :sFun_eyescan: . Thanks again John.

It's not rocket science, I've learned a lot here! One word of advice,
look :sFun_eyescan: carefully for shims. Some can be very had to spot. Take your time, and you will be fine. Enjoy!!

May your lines always be tight, Don
