Not a lot of pics out there on these higher end production rods. Sharing for future reference search info.

Thanks for sharing. You're right that these are seldom seen. People generally only see the low-end stuff from H-I and equate that company with low-quality products. The "Cunningham" was H-I's highest grade in the decade leading up to WWII, selling for a hefty $30.00 in 1932 and $36.00 in 1940. The "Registered" series after the war were also very high-quality rods. H-I gets a bad rap, more often than not.
