*very Scarce* 1933 Heddon #1000 "premier" 5' Split Bamboo Bait Casting Rod With For Sale
It's my pleasure to offer at sale a Very Nice and Quite Scarce 1933 HEDDONNO.1000 "PREMIER" 5 FT., 2-PIECE SPLIT BAMBOO BAIT CASTING ROD WITH THE ORIGINALSTAMPED TUBE & CLOTHBAG. Without question, this one-year model is one of the scarcestrods produced by James Heddon's Sons during the 1930's. First introduced as the No.10, an original member of Heddon's 1909 rod lineup and ahigh-grade model that would sell through 1932. It would be redesignated the No.1000 in 1933, then promptly discontinuedlater that year. Consequently, and with the Depression raging, not many sold for the hefty $20.00 price or we wouldbeseeing them from time to time. This makes only the second I've seen in 15 years. Heddon's Cleo Hanley has handwritten "Heddon" diagonally along three flats and "#1000" on a single flat, just above the signature wraps. The reel seat locking ring is stamped "PAT. NO.1624052", the 1927 patent assigned to Heddon for the screw-locking seat. The handle still carries a partial factoryfoil Heddon label, which briefly describes the manufacturing process. Built with some ofHeddon's highest-grade browntone Tonkin cane and comes equipped with full orange agate guides & tip top, high-quality serrated ferrules, knurled hardware throughout, nickel silver winding check, solid cork tournament grip & foregrip, screw-locking "Hold-Tite" reel seat with black pyralin spacer and closely wound in red and black silk. I've added a photo of the original listing from Heddon's 1933 catalog. Rod is in Fine+ to Very Fine original condition, showing moderate overall wear. Bamboo is perfect, with no splits, cracks or delamination whatsoever. Both sections are the correct length and remain arrow-straight. Original varnish was starting to become unsettled, so an overcoat of new varnish was applied at some point. All wraps are solid and complete. All guides, tip top, ferrules and winding check are in excellent condition. Reel seat works perfectly, with very nice hardware. Solid cork grip and foregrip show only moderate wear. Put up in a period bag that is very solid and serviceable, with no holes. All this goes into the original aluminum tube, which is in Very Fine+ condition, showing just light surface wear. The cap, correctly stamped "JAMES HEDDON'S SONS - DOWAGIAC, MICH.", screws on tightly and securely. A very nice complete packagefor one of Heddon's most elusive model baitcasters. To be sold with a very low starting offer and . Buyer to pay $18.00 shipping via U.S. Priority Mail, with full insurance and tracking. Payment must be received within 7 days of sale closure. Thanks for your time and good luck on this one.
