Hi all. I am looking to identify a Mitchell reel model, it has a half bail arm. Looks like there should be a washer under the spool nut but it's missing. Any help appreciated.

It looks to be possibly a 3rd Gen Mitchell 300.  Likely around 51-53.

You probably are missing (2) pieces -- a friction drag washer & a drag compression spring.

Best,

Yes, Shaun --

Those parts are available from multiple sources, including my shop.  Shouldn't be an issue.

We are mandatorily evacuated from our home due to a major fire event -- and it could be 3-4 weeks before we can return to our home -- which escaped damage at this point.

I will be happy to help you if you can not source the parts online -- N/C.

But for some of our close communities, it could be weeks, months, or years -- and even then things will never be back to a normal situation.

Best Always,

Fred

Your reel appears, as a result if the "A" prefix & low 5 digit # to be an early 3rd version, most likely '50/'51ish. You'll need 2-#5 washers, one between the spindle & spool and one between the spool and spring washer.

Here's probably a more time accurate schematic:
