The case would be the model "3" which is essentially the model 2 case frame (bar over crown, very flat crown marked "Hamilton Railroad")in yellow gold filled with white (stainless steel i.e. base metal) bezel and back with matching pattern. There has been speculation that Wadsworth had surplus case centers after WW II and made some bezels and backs to use with them from surplus dies to make functional cases, thus the disparate components. Hamilton needed to get civilian watches back on the market after the war and also used some cheap chrome plated cases (model 12) around this time. If this descibes your case please post it for sale int the Chapter 185 for sale site, I'd be interested in a shot at it.
