Hardy Pocket reel seats

Hi Guys

Putting this one out there for anyone with any little nik naks hidden away, that might be able to Help me.

I have been given rather nice old Hardy "The Test" split cane Flyrod for a wee re-furbish. The original reel seat hardware is missing and the rod has been supplied with a Pezon Michel downsliding ring and pocket Cap which suit the rod and fit perfectly, however I would much prefer to source an Original Hardy Pocket and ring to go over the cork insert.

It should look like this

I have contacted the Company direct and have yet to hear anything, but if anyone knows of one anywhere I would be interested as I would love to have the rod finished as original as possible.

Possibly - have a couple of old Hardy split canes decaying in the shed. I'll check 'em :z16
