Serial Number 528551 was reported as inaccurate.

Note: All is correct but on mine, the Movement Markings
also has "5 Positions" added under Adjusted.
Apparently that change was made sometime in this
run because I have serial #524262 from one year
prior which only says Adjusted but is also from
the same run according to my Illinois
Identification and Price Guide by Roy Ehrhardt.
