An Aerial Lever Type Mahseer reel, with brake. Patent number 135251 granted to J W Young in 1918.
In perfect working order and cosmetically looking pretty good for her age.
This actual reel belonged to Bob Singleton and featured in his book "The Allcock Aerial": A collectors guide. A Bible amongst collectors.
Garry Mills of The Mills Tackle Company then took ownership of this reel and fashioned his own very lovely version of it.
It now resides in France.
