Garcia Conolon Rod

I recently purchased a Garcia Conolon R574A rod that has me baffled. The rod is brand new never used in perfect condition. My question is on it's rarity considering the guides on it. It has roller guides top to bottom and a gimble. The rod is 6'10" medium action rated 20lb trolling 4stars. Any info on this rod would be greatly appreciated.

They were respected rods in their day. Not terribly valuable in terms of monetary value, but good rods then and now, nonetheless. Its not terribly rare, although I doubt many are in never used condition like yours.
