Default Horrocks-Ibbotson rod info

I just received an H-I Spinner fly rod on trade. It is split bamboo tokan cane. By the research I have found on the web it may be pre 1929 as the decal has a trout jumping over the H-I logo. It is 9' and in great shape, I would even say the handle looks new. What weight line would you use with it? What is the value? Any info please.

A 9' Spinner is a 6wt. It was one of H-I better 3 piece rods.
Value ? More than $100 rather than less

I found a couple on the web. Both were 8' 6" and neither said what weight they were. Glad Rip was able to tell you. It's easier than my way of doing it.
