Mitchell 408 S – 1985-1986 = 2,206 Units
Mitchell 409 S – No Records This Model Was Ever Made

 

Mitchell started making several unique 400 series models in the mid 1980s including a Mitchell 400, Mitchell 400 S, Mitchell 408, Mitchell 408 G and this one shown, the Mitchell 408 S. Within the 408 S series came two different models marked only by the handle presence or non-presence of a dust cap as you can see. Very few reels with the letter "O" prefix serial number have been found most of which are on the 400 series reels.

 

Some collectors believe the letter "O" was soon skipped over to the letter "P" prefix due to the similarity of the letter "O" to the number "0". The one shown with serial number O111 would date this reel 1984/1985 whereas the other shown with serial number QQ207 would be dated 1985/1986. The double "Q" appears to be a factory error.
