Hardy Perfect Fly Reel 3 1/8" - 1906 Check

For sale here is a vintage 3 1/8" Hardy Perfect fly reel with the 1905/1906 check. Majority of leading remains. Caliper spring is nice and strong and the bridged tensioner works fine. Gear teeth remain sharp. Ivorine handle spins freely and is in great shape. Original and full-length smooth brass foot. No spool wobble. Line groove in pillar as shown in photo.

The frame has a crack which you can see on both sides (as shown in photos). It's not loose at all though. Put a dab of loctite on the crack and take it fishing!

Or it could be a great parts reel......
