    Found this South Bend marked Grade 312 at an area antique mall yesterday. Got it for just $145. So far (24 hours) it is keeping nearly perfect time. I see it is missing a pillar screw but that probably not a serious problem. My research says it was part of the only run (1,000) in 1908. That rates it a 2 star for rarity according to "Complete Price Guide...". Must say I have never seen one before. It is "Adjusted" but still probably not RR grade due to hunter style. I have a very nice dial for it and need to find a nice hunter case.

    That's about all I know about it. Can anyone add anything? Thanks in advance for any info.

    Hi Rob. The current dial is an original single sunk South Bend. However, it has some fairly serious cracks. I have an identical original dial in perfect condition. Thought I had an 18 size hunter case but turns out that it is a 16 size.
