Case Manufacturer Ladd, George W.
Case Serial # 3134
Case Details Low S/N indicates this is a very old Ladd case. Heavy wear on case, some wear-thru on both covers, pendant and bow. Case is marked with G. W. Ladd Patent June 11 67 on case rim. Case has 4 hinges, coin edge, and is what I believe to be a "drum" case. NAWCC posts indicate the Ladd cases were more gold "clad" than gold filled, with the heavier layer of gold on the outside and a lighter gold plating on the inside. Old Ladd advertisements state that they used no less the 14K gold. Ladd's main claim to fame was in the stiffness of the cases and their patented hinges.
