My small collection of pre-300 and 300 Mitchells

Post by Paul9591 »

As this is a show and tell, I grabbed a few of my early Mitchells the other day for a group shot (the video link below shows only the pre-300 models, no music or verbal comment, but plenty in the description).

Very nice! Are some of the spools and reels repainted? They are in really great condition.

I like the early pre-boomerang / knob selection reel! They are scarce!

Outstanding collection! :) I’m looking to pick up an early Mitchell 300 to sit next to the Ocean City International 100 as it’s a direct copy.. so one day I’ll grab one. I’ll probably be competing with you to get it. :)
