No, but if you want to show me some, I'll buy them from under you.

A word of advice to you, out of the box, the older models are right-retrieve only, and cannot be flipped. I found this out the hardway, leaving me with a really sweet feeling early '50s model that makes me feel like I'm crippled when I try to use it.

I may have one laying around that I got around 1980. If I didn't already give it away, you guys can fight over it. It's expensive though.... $0. Left hand wind on it.

An '80s Medalist is changable, you just have to turn over the thingy inside (ratchet? sure, why not). Anything after 1959 is. Previous to that, the 1500 series were left retrieves. Now, the 1500 series are rim control (same frame as a 1400, but with an extended ring over the frame for palming).

There was also a 1300 series, but I cannot recall what made them different. Now they're the smaller models, click only and gold anodized. Back then, I think they were the Supremes, and supposedly salt-water corrosion resistant? YMMV, coz I'm probably way wrong.

The '80s versions are made in Asia, the letter codes dictate country of origin. DA is the US, and CJ and CK dicate Japan and China. You'll find the letter codes next to the model number.
