I picked this up on ebay a few months back.
CNoR Special, serial #552711
18s, 17jewel, lever set, Model 2
Grade 347, 9 runs of 1000


The hands are wrong, I hope to find the correct ones.

Larry, I just assumed they would have to be the same as the ones in the Ehrhardt book to be correct.

So far we have:

552711 ~ 347 ~ Dial ~ CNoR Arabic ~ Recase ~ Fortune winged wheel. (I'm thinking that since this serial# is so far out of whack with the others it is a re-dial.)

564224 ~ 347 ~ Dial ~ CNoR Roman ~ Likeness shown above from Roy Ehrhardt's Price Indicator.

564244 ~ 347 ~ Dial ~ CNoR Arabic ~ Case ~ Fortune winged wheel A.W.C.Co. Gold Filled posted in Larry's PL thread: Canadian Private Labels

564940 ~ 347 ~ Dial ~ CNoR ~ Said to have sold on eBay 2007.

A note on the South Bend 347. If you are ever looking at buying one make sure all the screws are correct.

At the bottom of the description it states:

Finish - Bevel head plate and jewel screws.


South Bend Catalogue, 1911
