This is a rare reel ideal for a 12.1/2 foot - 13 foot salmon fly rod  
Would also suit an 8-9# weight steel head rod 
The beauty of this reel is the  adjustable tension very rare on caged reels of this period 
The foot is full length and no line grooves to the pillars. 
There is a hint of line wear on one side near a pillar, I would describe as a graze opposed to a groove.
