Vintage Hardy Picture Thread

I'm sure others besides me are bored silly and thinking of trips that aren't going to happen. So how about a vintage Hardy picture thread to give us something to look at, and provide some vicarious pleasure. Here are a couple--please contribute your own.

All types of vintage Hardy's are fine with me, especially if mint/ unused with boxes included. One reel here goes back 120 years..

I don't know yet. I asked John if it was pinned or brazed.....he's not gotten back to me yet. He's had a rough past couple of months health wise.....so I've tried to be patient and have put total faith with her in his hands.

I have some nice vintage Hardy tackle, I have two large Hardy leather cases or trunks that store the vintage reels that I own. You do not see these leather trunks or cases often. The trunk has a removable layer which currently has a bunch of vintage casting reels. The lower portion of the case is divided and stores all the vintage fly reels (Perfects) as well as Silexes. I have a bunch of old bamboo 2 handed rods will have to get some pictures of the reels on the rods.
