The Mitchell 300A/301A was first introduced in 1977 for Garcia's distribution with serial numbers beginning with the letter "G". The first six pictures are of this 1st Version which has the serial number H052302 made in 1978, the last of these being produced. This is one of three reels that Mitchell placed a double red band around the rotating head. The others were the Mitchell 306 and the 308 series. Why the 300A was the only one of these three issued with the “A” suffix is a mystery. The 1st version Mitchell 300A/301A "Double Red Band" is the most valued 300A series reels among collectors.

 

The 2nd Version was first made within the same time period as the 1st version 1978 for European distribution. The most distinctive change was the black and silver sticker on the Rotating Head. All 300A series have a plastic gasket between the Cover Plate and Housing. The 1st version has a distinctive red color which can easily be seen if clean. The 2nd versions changed this gasket to black for a short period of time and then went back to red.

 

I'll add notes on all other versions shown below as time permits. Click Here to review the variations within schematics. Advertisements were limited on this series and can be even more confusing that schematics.
