Something maybe to keep in mind if you are trying to sell it is that Danielsson, the company that designed and built these reels, no longer makes any reels for Loop, having choosen to go their own way. Danielssson now sells their version of this reel, the “Original 3w” new online for $183 minus shipping to North America. Its a fantastic value, and way less than the loop version sold new, so unless you find someone who specifically wants to buy the loop version out of sentiment that issue will be out there. Pretty sure that this loop like the corresponding current version from Danielsson does not technically have a drag, just a bi-directional “overrun protection”.
Flip side I suppose it is possible that since it is no longer made it may be more valuable, but guessing not - these reels are super commonplace in Europe from what I have heard. Maybe someone who knows loop reels better could tell you it there are any collector factors to consider as to its value.
