Mine looks exacty like the one you have in the photo's. Mine was new that I got on the bay and described as havignsome corrosion sitting in a basement. It had a bit of white corrosion on the inside of the outer plate ( spool knob side ) at one of the reel foot cross bars . I just cleaned that out good and filled the slight depression with JB weld and touched up the finish , good as new.
