Lovely reel.
Between 1994 & 2004 and if it has "venting" around the circumference (I can't see from your photos) post 1996 at the BFR factory.

Great looking reel Casey. You really can't go wrong with a CFO reel. Timeless, classic and Orvis will always take care of any problems. I'm especially fond of the UK made reels, but even the latest production models are beautiful. That should be a great reel for many years to come.
