I was looking on the Internet and found this Seth Thomas Model 2 77A movement. It is the closest I found to mine. My movement has only 4 post that hold the plates together. But this 77A has a nut that holds down the hands.

All the trapezoid movements that I have seen, both the 77A and the 77B, have the threaded center shaft. They also have four posts that holds the plates together and four mounting posts/bolts that connects the movement to the back mounting bracket. I'm not sure yours might be a 77A or 77B but all the reproductions I have seen are made similar to the Model 61 movements. This might help further... could you explain how your movement mounts in the clock?

Eugene, I'm thinking you have a fairly rare clock. For one thing the turned plate posts are reminiscent of what you would see in an early English clock. I've never seen this in an American clock. And the post for tying off the cable wind is also turned. These are straight in all other #2 movements I've ever seen.
And the mounting bracket is also unique. Here's mine:
