The Mitchell 900 spinning reel is one of the last made in France Mitchell models. It is basically a 300 body with the newer style skirted spool design grafted on. These reels started the introduction of cheaper Asian sourced parts before France was out of the picture competely. I think they were sold around 1980, they're of some interest to collectors b/c they weren't very popular. They aren't worth a lot, cosmetically challenged $5-$10, good looking/working used $20-$30, mint boxed might go over $100.
