Orvis Battenkill III 1970's?

I have a question someone on here might have the answer to. My dad has this old Orvis Battenkill III, his most beloved reel. He has so many stories with this reel. Most of my childhood from the age 3 and up was spent reeling in fish on this reel. Not too long ago his reel was lost in the river and he often talks about that reel. I was hoping someone on here might know about this reel ormight even be willing to part with the reel. My dad told me he bought it brand new in 1979 back in Idaho. Here are some photos of the exact same reel. Does anyone know the time frame it was made? I've seen some early 80's models and they don't quite look the same. I know it was made by Hardy but that about all I can figure out.
