Mitchell 396 PUM – 1970-1979 = 19,462 Units
Mitchell 397 PUM – No Records This Model Was Ever Made

 

This first reel shown is an early European distributed Mitchell 396 PUM (pick up manual) with Serial Number 277828 was made in France in the early 1970s. It is common to find the red Garcia wedge sticker missing on most early releases sold. Although the Housing is molded above the "Mitchell 396" engraving for these stickers, no European distributed reels will have this sticker except for Garcia reels sold in The United Kingdom.

 

The next reel shown is a Garcia Mitchell 396 PUM with serial number E149105 was made in France c1975. These are so difficult to find, we're happy to show this one even though it's not in the box. Please note the new changes in the Housing casting where the Handle attaches and other changes under the spool. This is how you can tell a 1st release from the 2nd release.
