This is a very special reel for many reasons but mostly the friendships between Sheldon Coleman and Garcia Mitchell. Both companies were avid sportsmen who loved to fish, hunt and camp especially with their families. Sheldon was one of two sons of the founder of Coleman, W. C. Coleman. Sheldon was the CEO of Coleman Lantern from 1922 to 1988. For more information, see the pictures. The engraved plate states this was presented to Sheldon in 1975 by Mitchell Sports USA which can't be right, they didn't exist until 1984. This as well as the glass enclosed case was made later in time as you can see so; either this date has to be 1985 or more likely what I believe is that it was a present from Garcia Mitchell in 1975.
