In the early sixties the Kilt reels were made by Mitchell as a private brand for Nouvelles Galeries and Galeries Lafayette; a major French traditional chain store which use to cover all major cities in France. These reels have Kilt in place of Mitchell engraved followed by a 0 for the 300, 4 for the 304 and 6 for the 306 Mitchell series reels. You will also find several Galion series reels with the KILT insignia. JP Gumprich

 

The best specimen of a KILT 0 we have to show comes from the collection of Mike Read as seen below with serial number 3385876. By this serial number and reel features such as the baffle plate, handle and anti-reverse and trip lever alone, we know this one was a very early release made in France in the early sixties, say circa 1961.
