    I'm fairly certain this would have been a 16J grade 103s. I won an auction that
    was for SN#212353 Illinois Watch Co. grade 103 model 3. I will state seller as
    unknown, as I consider him unable to comprehend the movement I won at
    auction, did not show up in the US Postal mail at my PO Box. I returned what
    came, as he sent some Swiss lever to me. I consider this movement as stolen
    from the seller, since he refunded my account plus shipping.

    So, be on the lookout for movement #212353 16J in the data base. It has the
    Gothic Illinois lettering on the dial and sports Illinois hands.

    Are you certain that the seller didn't switch movements in error and that the movement you bought wasn't sent to the man who you received the movement you bought?

    Jim, I'm not certain of anything. All I get out of the seller is, I sent him
    the wrong movement back. I suspect he moved it to an Illinois collector.

    I'm about through bidding though, so I've not done a negative feedback.
    I could use one myself, who wants to be a 100% all the time.

    Keith,
    You maybe way off base by reporting his as as stolen watch or as fraud,

    What proof do you have as to the seller motive, he may have shipped you a watch that another buyer bough,t by mistake.?

    It happens:cool::p:D:eek::oops::rolleyes:o_O

    Jim, he got a negative feedback and I did get my original money back from the seller.
