He was mainly a dealer of high end firearms but had an eye for many, many things of fine quality. Two of those things are a Pezon et Michel rod and reel. The rod is a Pezon et Michel that has three pieces total, one base and two tips.Both tips are the same length, approximately 51 3/4 inches long. The base 52 1/2 with the "stopper" on it and a little less than 45 inches without it. There is writing on the rod, some I can identify, some I can not. So if I misspell something, forgive me. Pezone et Michel - Made in France - Super Parabolic (with a symbol after that resembles #P) - Speedcast II. Gyre Riccordi - 7' 11" 1/2 4.42 m - 116 Jrs - 4 1/8 oz #5 /6". There is also a "54" written just above the cork handle of the base piece. The first rod tip as a "1" and "54" written near the base. The second rod tip has a "2" and a "54" written near it's base. All three pieces of the rod are in a compartmentalized red nylon sack with a drawstring and then the sack is stored in a Pezon et Michel aluminum case with a screw on lid. It has a label with the following information on it. Royal Length: 7' 9 Weight:4 1/8 Line:#5 Serial No. Blank Everything matches the rod except the length.... If it has, it sure wasn't much. To me, all three pieces look to be mint condition. None of the eyelets appear to be bent or missing, the varnish on the rod shines like new with no scratches that I can see The cork handle is in excellent shape with no nicks or chunks taken out of it.
I hesitate you use the word "mint" but this rod fits that description. I have had both the rod and reel appraised by "experts" in this field and both agree that it is a pretty rare rod and in mint to very near mint condition.
If you would like to make a reasonable offer I will be happy to discuss it with her and let you know the outcome. Lastly, she agreed that she would be "more negotiable" if you are interested both the rod and the reel. If you need more pictures or have questions, let me know and I will do my very best to accommodate.
