YOU ARE offerDING ON A HARD TO FIND VINTAGE ORVIS IMPREGNATED 99 TWO-PIECE 7-1/2 3-3/4 OZ.' TWO-PIECE SPLIT BAMBOO FLY ROD. THIS ROD IS RECOMMENDED FOR HDH LINES. ROD SHAFT READS "ORVIS IMPREGNATED "99". ACCORDING TO GREG'S ORVIS FLY ROD DATABASE THIS ROD WAS PRODUCED IN MAY OF 1960. THIS ROD'S SERIAL NUMBER IS 27666. THIS SERIAL NUMBER IS MARKED ON THE BASE PIECE. THE SERIAL NUMBER ON THE TIP PIECE IS 27660, WHICH IS A FACTORY ERROR. THE CORRECT SERIAL NUMBER FOR THIS ROD IS DEFINITELY 27666 AS IT IS MARKED ON THE TUBE'S LABEL. IT IS CLEAR THAT SOMEONE AT THE FACTORY MISREAD THE FINAL "6" IN THE "27666" ON THE BASE PIECE, WHICH IF QUICKLY GLANCED AT, COULD BE MISTAKEN FOR A "0". ROD HAS BEEN FISHED AND IT HAS SOME RUBS/STAINS/SCRATCHES TO SURFACE, MOST OF WHICH ARE ONLY VISIBLE UNDER CLOSE SCRUTINY. ALSO, THERE ARE A COUPLE HAIRLINE CRACKS/A SMALL CHIP (WHICH EXTEND APPROXIMATELY 2-1/4") IN THE BAMBOO'S SURFACE JUST BELOW THE FIFTH GUIDE DOWN FROM THE TIP, WHICH, AGAIN, ARE NOT DEEP AND ARE NOTHING TOO SERIOUS. ALSO, PLEASE NOTE THAT THE OUTLINE OF THE OWNER'S HANDWRITTEN NAME AND HOMETOWN ARE SLIGHTLY VISIBLE (BUT BARELY NOTICEABLE) ON THE BASE PIECE. ALL WRAPS AND GUIDES ARE NICELY IN PLACE. HANDLE AND REEL SEAT HAVE SOME STAINING/SCRATCHES TO SURFACE. THIS ROD LOOKS NICE AND IT COMES TO YOU IN ITS ORIGINAL, CORRECTLY LABELED ALUMINUM TUBE. LABEL IS PRETTY WORN, BUT MOST OF THE SPECS ARE STILL VISIBLE. THE TUBE, ITSELF, HAS STAINING/RUBS/SCUFFS/SCRATCHES TO SURFACE, AND ITS CAP IS OFF AND MISSING. ROD COMES TO YOU IN ITS ORIGINAL GRAY CLOTH BAG. THIS ROD WILL BE AN OUTSTANDING ADDITION TO ANY ANTIQUE FISHING TACKLE COLLECTION. DUE TO THE LONG LENGTH OF THIS ITEM, I WILL ONLY SHIP IT TO BUYERS IN THE UNITED STATES. BUYER PLEASE ADD $17.50 FOR STANDARD SHIPPING, DELIVERY CONFIRMATION WITH SIGNATURE, AND FULL INSURANCE. ROD WILL BE SHIPPED WITHIN A DAY OR TWO OF RECEIPT OF PAYMENT.
