Does anyone have expertise or experience with tall case clocks associated with the Minutemen circa 1775?

Not sure what you mean by the Minutemen, but yes I've had dozens of American and British tallclocks and bracket clocks from the era. Do you have a specific question I can help with?

Sorry for being vague I'm new to this site. I have a clock that was owned by a member of the Minutemen. He went on to be a cabinet maker. He did not make this clock as he was too young at the time I think. He was 15. The date on the face is 1775. All records report him as the owner but no listing of maker. Is there somewhere in the clock I can tell who made it? The face reads Lexington 1775. Thank you.

First thing you would need to do is post some good quality photos

As Joey suggests good photos are necessary for us to be of much assistance. There are at least 10 listed clock makers working in Lexington, several of which worked during the Revolutionary War period.

I find the best way is to have them on your device, pc or phone, and click on the from pc button. It is all very intuitive from there and the board resizes them.
