I don't think I've posted these before. I have five different 18s Model 1, 2, and/or 3 in various grades. All of them have Illinois dials, and I don't know anything about the history of the movement markings - I bought them because they had a characteristic that I liked):

1. Thos. Stephenson (M1 Miller #6208 - Early Private Label))
2. Chieftain (M1 Columbia #198604 - Cool Gilt Dmsk)
3. The Hub (M3 103 #203487 - Cool Nickle Dmsk, Jeweled Fifth Pinion)
4. Lightning Express (M2 Currier #306760 - Like the Name "Lightning Express!)
5. Queen (M1 Currier #359623 - "Killer Queen" Movement)
