I agree, very thorough CFO history lesson. Two minor additions: 1. early CFO's were engraved and, by the 80's, the lettering and script were stamped, 2. Stan Bogdan, who's beautiful prototypes were featured in this fine piece, later maintained that he did not care for this, his own, design.

looks like a 100 year anniversary reel that Orvis put out in about 1983. Silver color is indicator.
