Read the top--no values!

However, pay what it is worth to you as there is no definitive dollar amount, as most are not equal in wear.

Oops - sorry, I did not see the value ban - I am interested in its rarity as I cannot find anything like it. I just received the Complete Price Guide to Watches 2004 and the Barlett size 18 does not list any with eagle outside - the M#1857 has an Eagle inside case lid (I suppose this is a small mark and not decorative) - is there a M# for this watch and is it rare?

No problem.

These are popular cases but not rare--what could be considered scarce would be ones in superb condition. Personally I like eagles but only in super nice condition, or better.

No, these 1857 model movements are in large supply and only special ones or early ones are scarce. About 885,000 of these 1857 model Waltham mov'ts were made so they are actually very common!
