My name is Jim and I am a Seth Thomas #2aholic. Back from vacation in San Diego with another #2 Seth Thomas. Nothing special, just a #2. I have possibly owned 75 of these or more over the past 30 years and currently now have 2 original and 2 Seth made "re-issues" from the 1970's. These clocks are so nicely designed that they just stand out when on the wall in your home.
