For sale here is a FE Thomas Special bamboo rod -- 9'6 3/3 for a 7 weight. Serial #HG53. Ferrules are 10/64 and 15/64. Weight is 4.85 oz. There are two "invisible wraps", one halfway up the butt section and one on one of the original tips. There are three tips. One tip has a crack in the cane and needs to be repaired before it can be fished. The second original tip has the invisible wrap 2 1/2" long before the last guide. Tip three is in fine condition, but definitely a replacement tip built after the rod was initially made. Comes with a replacement bag and tube.
