Interesting to know that in 1971 Mitchell also celebrated the 20-Millionth Mitchell reel manufactured in Cluses, France.1971 = A1972 = B1973 = C1974 = DMatching Serial Number stickers on boxes ended in 1974.
The breakdown of these years are:1949/50 – SN “A” Prefix began within 3rd Versions with the lowest serial number I’ve found being #A02558 however; a new discovery was made in 2008 by Jan Haanstra, a well known Mitchell Collector in Holland, a unique 3rd Version with very unique Cross-Wind Gears!
Mitchell closed the factory in 1988/89)1989 = T (New Old Stock Parts were used to make limited quantities of Mitchell reels that were still being hand assembled in France)1990 = No serial numbers with few exceptions such as the Mitchell 300 PRO Anniversary that has been documented as one model still being assembled in France however; most models are now being manufactured in Taiwan.
