REEL #16  1969

    "Garcia Mitchell 304S" on left side. Anti-reverse lever changed to "314" style.

    Normally I have taken "Mitchell xxx" to represent an older version of a reel than "Garcia Mitchell xxx," but in this case (and perhaps in all cases?) the lack of the word "Garcia" apparently means that the reel below was meant for distribution in Europe rather than in the U.S.
