I have an early American tall case clock that someone put a modern movement in and I am trying to restore it back to as original as possible. I have found a nice early movement but I need the false plate for the face. Does anyone have or know where I may be able to find a early false plate for this dial? I realize it will be near impossible to find one that fits the mounting pins and holes for the movement but I can have it reconfigured to fit.

Thank You,
Dave

Your pic of the dial does not open.

you can usually pick up falseplates on ebay in the UK.

I have a few leftover falseplate blanks, I had cast up, from old projects. I would be more than happy to send you one for the cost of mailing it. I also have several loose old examples but the effort of trying to match them up via email is not worth it.

Thank you very much. That would be fantastic. Please tell me how you would like me to pay you for one of the blanks. I can PayPal it if you have that, if not I can send you payment.

Send me a PM with your address and I will send one your way. I am not so concerned about getting postage here stateside. Canada or elsewhere can be a bit painful pricewise.
