Looks like you have an older Model 308, usually considered an ultralight reel. They were made from approximately 1959 until perhaps the mid-1970s. It should say "FRANCE" or "MADE IN FRANCE" on the reel to fit this time frame. Although sometimes very faint, the reel should have a serial number on it, usually on the bottom of the foot. This number would help you date it more specifically.
