    Look on the bottome of the reel seat. If the number starts with a regular number (example "73XXXXXX), then the first two numbers are the year it was made. If it begins with "00", then it's harder to tell as it probably has a replacement frame. Most of them I believe were made in the 70s. At least all the ones I've seen and worked on had a "70s" number on it.

    Hope this helps.
