Please help me identify my full-bail Mitchell reel. My reel's gear case simply says "Mitchell" on model number. The number 80345 is stamped upsidedown along the TOP of the backside of the gear case. There is a "T" stamped near the center inside the concaved foot. The ends of the foot are squared-off, NOT rounded-off as other Mitchells I own. The squared-off ends make it impossible to mount on most spinning rods. I hope someone can identify this reel for me. Thanks.

Greetings brgilmo,
:sSig_welcome4: to the Mitchell Reel Museum!
Based on your description, you have a 4th version Mitchell that was made in 1955. The odd characters like the "T" on the reel seat have yet to be understood.

You can check out the 4th version 300 pictures in the "Gallery" to compare this reels features.
