Research Note: Elgin Factory Serial Lists designated 455001-460000 as a single Grade 60 run. However, observations indicate this run of 10,000 appears to be split into two variations. 455001-460000 are simply marked "Elgin Natl. Watch Co." while 460001-465000 are additionally marked "The Age" on the barrel bridge.
