Attached is a picture of an unusual Hamilton Electric Railway Special Dial. It is the only one I have seen which is not a Montgomery Dial. The movement is a pendant set 974 sent for finishing March 20, 1922 (keeping in mind that it may have been switched). I have seen Electric Railway Special dials with all manner of movements including some high grade 992's.

I never would have realized these are scarcer. I get trained to think one way and ...hey, thank you Jim for opening my eyes back up.
