Farlow’s 4 1/2″ Patent Lever Salmon Fly Reel
Marked on backplate with …
Patent No 3202

It appears the reel may have had another coat of paint at some point which has been partially removed to view the above makers inscriptions. Also, the tab on the drag knob has sheared off and been re-attached at a different angle to its original position at some point. The drag knob does not turn currently.
The check is audible and the reel and handle both turn freely still.
Some paint stripper would improve this reel!
