Today's arrival - a Miller grade movement made in the first year of Springfield Watch Co's operations.
I've already shown a 'Currier's Patent' Currier and early Stuart, so I'll focus on repairs, less on movement's details, as it's very much the same as the two.

It's the one I cased in a Waltham 14s case of the time.
