Hi Captain —

This dating guide will get you close in most cases.

http://mitchellreelmuseum.com/index.php/Content/mitchell-fishing-reel-dating-guide.html

From ‘39 to ‘89, various versions were produced in France.

Many of the versions are ID’d by specific components (crank knobs, A/R exterior lever & interior mechanisms, screws diameters, spool configuration, word font, bail type, etc..).

Over the years of production as well as reel owners needs — parts were routinely changed out for newer
ones, or older — since most would change straight across with no issues.

Best,

Fred

Self-worth is how you value yourself. It’s not based on what others think of you or the things you have (or haven’t) accomplished—it comes from within. But it’s easy to forget that our worth isn’t determined by outside forces -- each of us sets our own price.
