REEL #2  1938

    This, I believe, is the first "version" of Version 2, call it Version 2A. The winder knob has been changed from wood to aluminum and three "fingers" have been added to the spool knob. The spool pillars are more closely spaced and are no longer silver colored. Note that the bail mechanism is still the same as Version 1, however.
