The gold finish does have some minor imperfections; however, it still shines and looks awesome. Right next to the "300 DL" engraving on the reel, there is a scratch on the black paint from the anti-reverse lever being pushed too hard (can be seen in the last photo). Besides this scratch, the black finish is in great shape and shows little usage. The serial number on this reel reads "2589262".
