    Default Seth Thomas movement 89?

    I bought a Seth Thomas movement which appears to be unique. The movement is a bim-bam strike with a rack and snail. the snail has grooves that allow the clock to strike the quarter hours. One bim-bam on the quarter. Twice on the half and three times on the three quarter. Then the hour. On the leg is marked 89 with something after that that I cannot make out. Possibly a 0 however looks like a backwards J. Seth Thomas is marked in the upperleft corner. Can anyone tell me about this movement and what clock it would have been installed in. Thanks Jim

    I checked the find feature and found additional info on this movement. Does anyone know what type of case(s) these would have been installed in? Thanks Jim

    Mike, I have this same movement from a Plymouth clock. I noticed in another of your posts that you believe this movement takes a 5/3 double-ended key. Is that correct? I need one. Thanks!!
