    I looked though about 15 pages of old post on this subject and I saw alot of indivual post for a specific Hamilton private label, but didn't see a general post for listing your private labels.

    So, lets start one !

    Hamilton 975, SN 303,402, sold 8/13/1903 to Seligman Jlry Co. in Chicago. Signed "E.B. Lewis, Dwight, Ill." on dial and movement; gilt trim. B&B case appears original, engraved "F.J. Welter, 1916" on cuvette. E.B.Lewis is probably Everett B. Lewis, b. 1871 or 1872.

    My first PL. Hamilton 974, SN 356,709, sold 8/31/1907 to H.A. Osgood & Sons, Lewiston, ME. Signed "M.W.Bassett" on dial, "M.W. Bassett, Hartford, Conn." on movement; gilt trim. Merton W. Bassett, b. 1872, served in the Spanish-American war, then bought out another Hartford jeweler in 1906. He had a growing business, becoming a 'HallMark' jeweler, thus selling Hallmark (Illinois) watches. Retired due to ill health in 1931. Lived in Newington CT after he retired; I bought this watch from a dealer in Newington, CT in 2005. Dealer put it in the display case. Bassett died in 1950. Interestingly, I see no mention of Hamilton in his ads after 1907.

    This is serial # 53025 which is listed in the Price Guide as Early 16 size. What the He-- does that mean?


    It is a 973 and whoever is responseable for the Price guide has had these 3 serial number blocks listed like this for years, when all they have to do is LOOK at the Ledgers and they would know what grade they are.

    Hamilton never produced any grade as "Early 16s":o

    This watch is a grade 973 and a PL for N.V. Cole, MichiganCity, Ind. and sold to him on 6-5-1897

    I thought that name was familiar sounding.

    I have two Canadian private label, 18-size Hamiltons, marked on dial only. Any sense in my posting pictures?

    I would at least like to know the names of the Canadian cities, Doug. Go ahead and post pictures.
    Meanwhile, here is a '925' movement from Paris.
