Acquired this 1906 from IHC member Mark Clark. The movement is on the database. Fascinating history of the town and jeweler on the Internet.
Any other owners or history is appreciated.
This hobby gets better every day.

Thanks Dr. Debbie,
I realize these low grade units do not generate interest like rare fine quality pieces.
But Americana is a strong force and history is a big part of collecting.
The 1935 ads say the 974 was $35 and better grade was $60. This equates to $600 and $1000 in today's money.
Holyoke Mass. Appears to have had some tough years, but is coming back. We hope all small towns can come back.
Mike
