I have what looks to me to be a William Leavenworth wooden tall case movement and dial, except for one feature. It has a vertical slot in the front plate so that the center arbor can be removed without taking the movement apart. This appears to be the same as or similar to what is seen in the Roberts family movements, however I have not seen a reference to Leavenworth using this feature. I know there has been discussion about William Leavenworth movements here in the past and I am wondering if any one here can shed any light on this feature appearing in this movement.
