Allcocks Improved Coxon Aerial uncatalogued size 3″ 1925-28 only, super rare reel
A rare Allcock Improved Coxon Aerial reel in uncatalogued 3” diameter size, not many of these about!!
The reel was produced 1925-28 only, so a short production runs of approx. 3 years and only listed as size 3-1/2” and 4” in the catalogue.
Alloy drum with twin white crazed handles, 6 spoke with tension regulator, small chips in inner drum flange against the handles as can been seen in the images.
Drum measures 21mm between internal plates, so you may be able to swap out the drum with another alloy standard reel?
Original wood backplate with inner brass ring denoting the Improved part of the title, brass 2 screw line guide could be removed if you wish.
Brass starback with the foot return stamped 2748, additional solder to spindle to tighten it, the optional check ratchet button works but is tight, so a little TLC needed on the ultra-rare Aerial but worth saving or displaying as is.
