Recently we published a blog relating to the Heaton’s Fishing Scene brass reels and made mention of some replicas which hit the market approx. 30 years ago.
So in good public information style here’s the replica in detail.
Note the stamp on the foot blade, J.B Moscrop of Manchester which is both wrong in terms of the maker or retailer and helps you spot a repro.
Additionally the detail on the fisherman and his surroundings are a bit fuzzy.
That said it’s a good item to display and compare with a genuine model and it could be collectable in the future.
