FS: Rare Hardy (by Wheatley) Swing Leaf Security Clip Fly Box

For Sale: An early, large, security clip, swing leaf fly box sold by Hardy; made by Wheatley.
- A rare, large box which measures 8" x 4 1/4" x 1 1/2". Will hold your largest classic Speys, Dees, or traditional salmon/steelhead flies.
- 82 security clips; 16 in front and back, 25 on each side of the swing leaf. Clips are marked with Hardy patent information. All clips are secure.
- Wheatley logo and typical markings on exterior.
- Early loop style hinges on swing leaf.
- Condition is good, not excellent. Closes well, all clips are secure, but the top hinge on the swing leaf has been beat up a bit (see photos). It still works fine but a bit of care is needed when swinging the leaf or closing the box. Otherwise normal wear with no other issues.
This is a great box for carrying a ton of larger flies in your kit bag, but some would find it too large for a jacket pocket. Security clip boxes are hard to come by, particularly those with a swing leaf, and this larger size is rare. With no damage to the hinge, this would be a $150 - $200 box. $100 shipped and insured within CONUS. PM or email at [email protected] if interested. Thanks.
