I'm fairly new to the clock collecting community, and happy to have found such a great group as this one! My latest purchase is a Seth Thomas adamantine clock, and I'm interested in knowing approximately when it was made. I've done some work on the case to bring it back. The movement had very little wear on it - one pivot that could probably use a bushing, but otherwise fairly clean. At this point, I just oiled it and put it back in service. (I bought a similar movement on eBay to practice on before I attempt to take this one apart) The pendulum bob appears to be just lead, with no plating or marks at all. No idea if it's original. I can find no numbers or letters on the case, only on the paper label, which is in pretty poor condition. Also, I have two questions on the case - I repainted the pinstriping on the front in white. Is that correct? I wanted to save as much of the flaking label as possible, so I put a coat of Modge over it, which seemed to do the trick. Is that an acceptable practice? Thanks for any help you can give me!
