Pre-Calcutta. Remember those shimano ads where they fill the reel with heavy line, locked the drags and pulled in big sharks? It's collectable but there are not that many guys looking for them. Maybe $200-250 at the high end (never used,never spooled, mint box, all accessories and manuals intact and untouched), which doesn't even buy a new Calcutta 700 after tax... Shimano has no parts. 7 years after ceasing production they have the right to discontinue parts and support. They then sell off the parts to 4 vintage parts/service centers. The parts that wear out tend to get depleted first. I would be shocked if you could find drag washers with less than 20 phone calls. Shep at J&H loves these reels and is probably your best bet for service on LI.

A mint one went for $121 on Ebay a couple days ago.
