Vom Hofe, Julius -- H.L. Leonard Raised Pillar Salmon Reel

For sale here is a HL Leonard Raised Pillar Salmon Reel, made by Julius Vom Hofe. Nickel silver rims, pillars, screws, hard rubber side plates. 3 7/8" diameter (4 1/4" across pillars) and 1 1/2 to 1 3/4" spool width. Includes a faint stamping on the faceplate with says "HL Leonard Patent No." and then I think it reads 191813, which would be the Philbrook & Payne patent number. The four-position sliding drag adjustment bar and fixed click works well. The drag strength doesn't compare to what you would encounter on a EVH or Zwarg reel, but considering the reels age, it's in fine working condition. Overall the reel is in excellent condition cosmetically with no cracks to the hard rubber and no buggered screws. The reel foot is full-length and unfiled but does have a slight kink on one end. Reel weighs 18 3/4 oz.
