Question Martin Aut' Fish Reel??

I have just recently aquired a Martin automatic fly reel. It is black, mounts on the rod like a sideways single action, and is inscribed with "MARTIN AUT' FISH REEL CO. MOHAWK, N.Y." on the reel seat. The apostrophe by AUT isn't a typo, it appears just like that on the reel seat. It is also inscribed with "PAT. APPL'D For. The retrieve mechanism is wound by a circular platepositioned on the opposite side of the reel from the reel seat.It makes up the entire bottom cover, and to wind the reel you simply twist the plate. Can anyone tell me anything about this reel???? I'd be interested in storiues about it, information about the maker, whatever. I'll try to post pics, but all my pics are lousy.

Tight lines and HEAVY automatics,

Steelhead Junkie

The top one is sorta what mine looks like. On mine the reel seat is silver, and the rest is black, except for the area between the crank thingy and the attachment point of the bottom half of the reel.And the line is clearly visable around the reel, kinda like a Medalist. Thanks for the reply. Keep 'em comin' !!!!!!
