    Request for Rockford Serial Numbers from 1-255,000 ( now expanded to 500,001)

    Oh! Well then, I'd like to retract my former panic attack, but if you are open to up to #500,000 then I have like 70-80 to add, so I'll have to get to work. I'll try and at least get a list of numbers together asap. The "Our Own" labeled ones that I have, that I posted previously- #274246...

    E. Howard 10 size 21 jewel question

    I have seen a number of these Keystone Howard 10 size, series 14, marked "21J" and with an arrow with a star in it, . . . but a "V" underneath it, and I only count 19 jewels. Is this a known thing, are they marked incorrectly, or are there jewels somewhere I'm not expecting? I'm sorry that I...

    Rockford damasking patterns

    I don't know about that damasking pattern, but I do get the distinct impression that ones with the plain nickel finish, like your example here, are among the most scarce. Even more so than the two-tone ones. The only ones I have like that are signed for a Private label as "Our Own"".

    Rockford damasking patterns

    Two have this leaf pattern which seems unusual to me. But, I've really no idea.

    Rockford damasking patterns

    Both I suppose. I have a large collection of horribly fubar scrapped model 7's and 8's. A few are private labels. Most of them are plain gilt finish, but I have 15-20 in nice two-tone damasked finish. There's maybe 4 or 5 different patterns represented and I just wondered which might be the...

    Rockford damasking patterns

    Does anyone have any compiled information about which Rockford 18 size model 7 and 8 damask patterns are more rare than others? there seems to be quite a variety.

    Anyone have info on Jno W Kimpel?

    I also have one marked "F.J. Kempel. Oregon, Ills." on the movement. A Rockford. Wondering if anyone knows if this is associated with the same family or chain of Jewelry stores?

    Mystery trade mark

    Indeed. Our/my thought is it probably does signify something. Either karat content or perhaps plate thickness/age wear. Like gold-filled 5 year guarantee or 25 year guarantee. Or just the trademark for a particular company. ?

    Mystery trade mark

    Thanks! No. As far as I know it has no other markings at all. Definitely not under the lid or bezel. I do have a shot of that. And, your list is also all I can find for Ladd trademarks. So, I think we can conclude that it is not a Ladd case. I have permission to share the photos, but it's...

    Mystery trade mark

    Thanks, Rick. It's as good a lead as any I have right now. You might be on to something.

    Mystery trade mark

    Thanks, Rick. I can. And the serial number of the Elgin in it is from 1873. It is gold . . . colored. No idea if it's filled, what grade, or solid of some mystery karat.
