Here's an earlier Heddon with a full Nickel Silver seat:

Here's the identical seat taken off a busted up Abbie and Imbrie marked trade rod made by Heddon. It polished up like this in a couple minutes. Needless to say, I would like to find a few more. I have seen variations on the design as well.

Hi Tom,

The old reel seat was a nice find, and well suited to the rod you built. As always, beautiful work, and inspirational!

Best,

Tim
