Bristol 73 fishing pole?

I went to my local flea market today and bought a Bristol 73 fishing pole for $2 dollars. The handle is wooden and the pole is steel I think. It's in good condition but i'm going to restore it but restaining the handle and painting the pole. I tried looking it up online but can't find any info on this pole. Does anyone know any info on this pole like the year it was made etc?

telescopic? the original one was.
l'm not exactly certain of the age of your particular rod but it is pre-WW 2 in any case.
steel rods were very common at that time. beryllium copper was also used.
not a lot of info on bristol rods evidently. maybe they just never hit it off in the collector's market.

here is a little bit of bristol history:
