This listing is for a Vintage Shimano Bantam 201 SG Casting Fishing Reel which is the LH Left Hand reel . This reel has the anti-reverse on/off switch on top of the reel. Take advantage of my combined shipping discounts on reels.
It is in very good cosmetic and working condition with what I would consider to be very minor wear. It does need to be cleaned as it seems to have a little oil residual around all the little parts. I also bought a Shimano reel cleaning kit at the same estate sale and it looks like this man took care of his reels. Looks like he cleaned & oiled this then put away in the box and that's how it's been sitting for how ever many years. I did notice that the little black decal on the side that shows you how much ?tension? is not stuck on good but since I don't know anything about these things I'm not going to try to stick on better. Best left to you experts! My son is a fisherman and he took a look at this reels, says it seems to be in great working condition (begged me to give it to him!).
It is in the original box with the paperwork and actually has the receipt of when it was purchased in 1984! I've seen the heavy bidding on the few of these that have recently sold on ebay but I'm not big on the bid auction and am just listing for buy it now, would like to sell quick so feel free to make an offer. Please ask questions and I'll try to answer. I have 100% feedback. Sorry I only ship to the US.
