Hardy reel makers initials are engraved on the inside of the back plate (under the spool).
The initials you quote are not listed on the Hardy Bros website. They say their list is a partial list but chances are, the letters stand for something else.

here is the Hardy site URL http://hardy.hardybc.com/reelmakers.php

good luck

I'm hardly an expert on these matters but my guess is that the initials belong to a former owner.
