    Hi you all, and Happy Thanksgiving 2017. I have a New Haven " Referee" c. 1910 that you can plainly see the word "Regulator" used to be there, on bottom glass, like someone scraped it off with a razor blade.The gold square is still around the edges. Anyone else seen this? And why would it be done? Thanks for any info.

    Hi again, found my own answer. Willie X answered in '' general clock discussions'' that 'many were scraped clean because people didn't like that advertisement in their house' Thanks, i'll try a little more research from now on, theres a world of knowledge on these forums
