Herschede Tall Case Clock

I was lucky enough to purchase a Herschede tall case clock in an auction in Maryland a few months ago. It is in poor shape, but I am working hard to remedy that! Anyway, the clock has barley twist columns and, in my opinion, is gorgeous. The movement is an original 1916 (or so) Herschede movement, 9 tubes, and a round type A dial. There are only two weights.

On the back of the clock is marked the following: 1, then 216 underneath, then 653 underneath. The number 216 is repeated other places on the case (top, door, etc) ensuring all the parts originally came together.

My question: What is the name of this clock model? I can't find it in any of my books, and need some expert Herschede help.

Thanks!!!

pictures would be amazing! in fact, it would be almost impossible to provide any more information without them

I am a fan of the round dial clocks as they are fairly rare. also rare is the fact that this clock is a 2 weight model. unfortunately, it would be an understatement to say that the double weight versions are not known for their reliability. it would also perhaps be an understatement to say they are not known for being easy to adjust properly. they were only made for a short period of time. hopefully you have one that doesn't have a lot of wear in the movement.
