Serial Number 351955 was reported as inaccurate.

Note: Serial number 351955 is correct except it has a
Tucker patent regulator instead of a Teske patent
regulator.
Curator Response: Thanks for the report. This is a common misconception. The "angled" caliper design was also Teske, according to original documentation. Tucker later attempted to take credit for the design in advertisements. https://pocketwatchdatabase.com/guide/company/hampden/regulators
