description: Stunning early Payne rods made by Jim himself circa early 50's. Early red label Sold by Abercrombie & Fitch on butt cap. The rod is in "M" condition as new with paper wrap still on the grip, with perfect varnish no issue and no repairs! These rods have been stored all these years in an controlled environment and are 100% original just perfect as if it just came from the Payne Shop! 100% original. The rods weight is 2-1/2ozs. If you collect Paynes this is a rod you will want and most likely never see again in this condition. This rod came out of "The Crawford Collection" which is the largest collection of Abercrombie and Fitch tackle in the world and some of the Finest rods I have seen in years! Additional information and follow-up history: At this time we are trying to confirm and located providence on these group of rods that ties them to Dwight D. Eisenhower the 34th U.S. president of the United States and the original owner. There is a photo of President Eisenhower with one of the rods but we have still not located these items yet! If an when located all original document would be send to the new owners! It is at this time not sure if we can locate said items and the reason items were not mentioned in the original add. I feel these rods can stand alone even without providence but would be an added plus. Stay Tunned!!!
