Need help id'ing the model please

Post by roxo56 »

Pretty sure this is a Horrocks-Ibbotson and of little value.
However, it has sentimental value to me and as an amateur rod builder I would like to personally restore it to the way it was when my late uncle gave it to me 50 years or so ago.
Does anybody know what model it is ?
Thanks in advance if you can help,
Lou

specs:
9'6" 3-piece bamboo
verrrry short cigar grip
only one tip
wrapping thread is badly faded to a tan color or it may have been red...(can't remember back that far)

Thanks to Mr Alexander with Antique Rods and Reels for his tentative ID of this rod being H-I.
I searched and found only two possibilties. A Shakespeare "Jim Dandy" , or an H-I.
