Dingley Fly Reel 3" William Mills & Son - Caged Spool Fly Reel

For sale here is a RARE Dingley-made 3" caged spool fly reel made for retailer William Mills & Co in New York. It's very hard to find Wm Mills reels like this. This highly sought after brass pin caged reel has an early fixed caliper check, which is nicely blued and adequately strong. Correct original and un-filed smooth brass foot. No line grooves. There are no cracks. Original ivorine handle spins freely. Tiny amount of end play (not even close to requiring repair) and no wobble. As with most leaded Dingleys, the majority of the original leading remains on the reel. Reel has the D stamp inside.

I have FOUR Wm Mills Dingley caged spool reels I am selling.....see them here. Make me an offer on the set. My guess is you won't find another collector with all 4!
