I was under the impression that they made few if any older left hand perfects. That would mean you would have to find a limited edition reproduction reel. What's purist about that?IMHO,not as pure as an early 1900 gunmetal finish with patina and character.Not sure what you are looking for in terms of age. Just curious,cause I have been looking at most perfect salmon's that come for sale on ebay for a few of years and do not remember seeing any. Some may have claimed they were.I think I saw one[Taupo] once in Jim Adam's catalog that was a left[should have grabbed it]. I have seen new limited editions in Jim's catalog. I bought one spitfire repro 3 3/4 that is designed for left. I am not an expert. There are some members on this site that are and would know probability of finding what you are looking for.
