Fishing/vintage custom Phillpson bait casting rod

Question
I have a vintage rod my father passed down to me.  He told me it was a custom Phillipson.  Has original sales receipt which says 7' Bait Caisting Rod made from 7' fly blank.   Dated 2-19-65 and is direct from Phillipson Rod Company.  The price appears to be $20 originally.  The rod has never been used and is about as mint as they come...even in original shipping box.

I'm wondering if you can give me an idea as to the approximate value and also the best way to sell it where I could receive the highest value?  Ebay or a private auction, or private sale?

I appreciate your time.

I would expect this to sell in the $200-300 range. You can sell it on ebay and should get a premium based on the condition described. Sell it under Sporting goods>outdoor sports>fishing>vintage>rods

Morphy and Langs Auctions also handle fishing tackle.
