Metinks that your second photo is a mirror image???

Not that it really matters - apart from the engravings under the balance wheel, everything else in your first photo appears to be very legible.

Very unusually this Grade 187 is marked like No other that has been seen or recorded before. The others are marked 5 or 6 position.

This one is marked Positions only. I tried to win auction. Hopefully some one on this site won it.

Ever see a Private label 187? I have ser # 1,455,702- " Archie Testmeyer- Milwaukee, WI" on pillar plate under balance.
Sorry photos too big to come thru.

Any one else see one like this?

Terry,

Extremely large images cannot be viewed by those with slower internet connections or smaller screens. Due to those considerations and to avoid overloading storage capacity our system is set up to not accept poster size images.

>> Proper size: 640 X 480 Pixels
>> Resolution: approximately 72 Pixels/Inch

In there you will find information about sizing your images and posting them on our site.

Serial # 2395406 looks like it should match up with variant 7. Except that the (E) in Temperature does not match up with the word Adjusted. Instead of making a new Variant. I'm going to call it a

Variant 7
