Valentine Planetary Model 350 Fly Reel

For sale here is a Valentine Planetary Model 350 -- brown prototype color. Serial number B0035. Reel is in new/mint condition and features the rare brown finish which was a test color in 1977 shortly after the model 350 was first introduced. Only one batch was ever made in this color and company records show only four brown reels were ever sold. This reel was from the collection of the family which owned the company. Right hand retrieve (can be converted to left). In original leather pouch, labeled box, and papers. At 3 1/2", this is the smallest and most usable model in the Planetary series and a great American made (MA) collectible reel.
