Made by the company now known as Abu Garcia. Date code is 741000 which means it was made in Oct. Reel is equipped with a "rocket bail". This refers to the conical section above the line roller to help reduce line twist. Not all Cardinal reels had this.
There is a small chip on the back end of the foot (see final photo). The scuffing on the foot is very superficial. If you have any questions please contact me.
