Serial Number 2731548 was reported as inaccurate.

Note: According to the 'Complete Price Guide to watches'
by Shugart and others, the model 6 in 18s size is
RR grade.
Curator Response: Thanks for the report. The movement is not marked "Adjusted" and would not have been accepted into railroad service at the time of production. There are certainly some 18-Size Model 6 movements that would be considered railroad grade.
