Serial Number 9386181 was reported as inaccurate.

Note: This serial # was not a winding indicator. It was
marked "Adjusted" in black lettering on the
balance cock, with "Safety Barrel" and "19 Jewels"
in black lettering on the fancy pattern
damaskeening of the nickel barrel bridge. The case
was a Star 925/1000 sterling silver swing out
case, and I think it was the original one, with a
thick crystal. PW/LS. Raised gold jewel settings,
but I think all of the train was gilded, with not
even the center wheel of gold. Possibly 1902 was
too early for the gold center wheel or train.
