FS-Pre-war Uniqua

I have for sale a pre-1921 Hardy 4 1/4 Uniqua with excellent leading and patina. Horse shoe latch, ivorine handle, two feet (short brass one and long smooth alloy one with installation instructions from the maker). No wobble, play, frame cracks or line burns. For it's age, it's in exceptional condition. Currently RHW, but can be switched if needed. The backing will stay on the reel. I don't need to sell it, but I'm not using or displaying it. I'm moving back to Wyoming, and could use a little extra cash for fuel.
$400 USD shipped CONUS. Anywhere else, we'll talk.

I've got the sister to this reel on an older Meiser 13'6" MKS, and it balances nicely. To hear this reel sing to a large steelhead is something I'll never get over! I have a 3 3/4 Uniqua of the same vintage made by the same gentleman for my Meiser 12'6". What a team! The ugly stepsisters of the Hardy family.

Great reels.
