Another long distance award here, Alnwick to Norway to Scotland to the Midlands and onto the next owner! Over 1000 miles and counting.
This is a fine condition Hardy Silex Superba reel. Built from 1960 to 1971, it’s the successor to the Silex Jewel that was discontinued in 1959.
It comes with a Hardy letter detailing use and care and the correct original box.
This particular example is little used and has a red/gold foil sticker to the rear from tackle shop Finn de Lange Bergen, (Norway) a town in which I still have relatives today. We have blogged about Finn de Lange previously regarding a wooden Nottingham reel brought to them for valuation and they got in touch with us.
So we are reciprocating in showing them a reel which it looks like they have sold new or as a collectable, perhaps the guys will get in touch to shed some light on it.
This reel came as part of the 95 reel collection from Scotland and with its maker’s box; I think it’s just a bit more special for the collector. It’s for sale here.
