I agree with Fred, my only add in terms of why the 179's seem to bring stronger prices, would be that some of these Grade 179's were marked with Railroad lines, such as Little's B&O, C&O Specials...etc.
That would certainly add to a stronger premium paid for 179's bearing those specially...
Thanks for posting this thread, I for one, enjoy reading these minutes from the inspector meetings and find it a pretty interesting insight to the concerns these men had at this moment in time.
are there any plans to put the Hamilton ledgers onto CD or Online so members can either purchase or access this information?
I think this is a great start to put catalogs onto CD's and/or put the info online.
Doug, Great Watch!
thanks for posting it. I remembered when you got it!
Thats a beauty and extremely difficult to find 18s Ball double sunk Railroad dials that are as nice as that one.
The movement condition is nothing to sneeze at either!
Terry, thanks for the reminder, I didn't even think to post this one.
Kent - I remember now reading that quote from Jeff's paperwork he had from the ball collection.
Interesting ball's use of terminology of those he traded the watches off to.
Ball Shipping box, marked " Balls & Swivels " on...
Glad you've decided to restart the "watch of the month" page. I for one have always looked forward to seeing these nice watches each month that are picked, as well as the super photography of each watch, dial and movement!! :smile:
