The card says the dial was changed, as I would expect, since it wouldn't have come on this 21-jewel Wm McKinley RRG movement.

I have a 19-jewel Hampden Electric Railway Standard example (movement #1897655) which I bought right here in the IHC mart:

Auction Link

and I believe to be correct, with the same dial as shown above, but with the movement marked "Railway" (see photo).

Those are some nice looking watches.

The Hampden Watch Co. book by Hernick and Arnold shows that dial on page 56 fronting serial #2,074,275 which is a grade No. 107. On page 144 serial #2,074,105 is listed in addition to the previous serial number as Electric Railway Standard on dial.


Below is some information from the Hampden database.
