Vom Hofe, Edward - Model 423 Restigouche 4/0 Fly Reel

For sale here is an Edward Vom Hofe Model 423 "Restigouche" Salmon fly reel in near mint overall condition. Size 4/0 - 3 7/8" diameter with a width of 1 11/16". This reel carries the '02 patent date on the oil cap. German silver safety bands and pair of roller bars. The reel has a strong adjustable drag and click. This reel has the seven detent arrowhead pointer drag feature with very bright red dot indicators. The reel foot is full length, not filed, and has the model and size stamp but no serial number, leading me to believe it's a replacement foot to fit more contemporary rods. The reel almost looks brand new.
