Brooklyn Coin Silver

This mark has been attributed to the Brooklyn Watch Case Company, though the association has not been confirmed with any doucmentation. The Brooklyn Watch Case Co. used a similar arched "Warranted" mark on solid gold cases from this era. Though, the terminal ends of the mark used on the gold cases are not stylized like this known example. The company also used letter markings in a similar style with an upper arch and straight-bottom cartouche. Surviving examples of gold cases reveal that the company's name was typically omitted or appeared in a minor location away from the primary mark. The annoymous or pseudo-annonymous practice of marking cases is consistent with this silve mark as well. No other silver case markings have been attributed to the company during this era, so this exmample is a logical match.

The mark features are also similar to the Fortenbach and Fahys style. The border profile of "Warranted" is also similar to a profile later used by the Brooklyn Watch Case Company for certain marks. Joseph Fahys was known to work with the Brooklyn Watch Case Company during this time, and he may have been responsible for this coin silver case through the Brooklyn Watch Case Company. A surviving example has been seen with a U.S. Watch Company Marion movement.
