Hardy Perfect Fly Reel 3 3/8"

For sale here is a leaded pre-war 3 3/8" Hardy Perfect. MKII check - both pawls engageable. Fine mechanical condition - no issues. Ribbed brass foot measuring only 2" in length, likely a custom request with no obvious filing or aftermarket shortening. Gear teeth and pawls still very sharp. Winding plate is stamped "TAG" for Thomas Armstrong. Ebonite handle spins freely. Rim tensioner works great and the springs are still very strong. Badged for Stoddard's Boston. A rare find!
