Serial Number 2943005 was reported as inaccurate.

Note: This is a "Molly Stark" grade, as indicated on the
movement. I measured the movement as 26.5 mm
across, so it might be a 3/0 or 6/0 size. I'm
guessing it's a 7 jewel? See images, I showed a
close-up of the SN on the "case" photo.
Curator Response: Thanks for the report and images. The database has been updated accordingly.
