Data Verification Reports

Anonymous ยท March 4, 2019

Serial Number 209721 was reported as inaccurate.

Note: This is a Gold Flashed model 5 that is not double
roller, is 17J, nor is it a Maiden Lane due to no
recess under the balance.
Curator Response: Thanks for the report. Not all Maiden Lane movements featured a recessed balance. This was a result of the double roller escapement added to the Model 5 later in production (c.1910-1915). Earlier Maiden Lane movements are fitted with a single roller and do not feature a recessed balance. #209721 has veen verified as a gilt-damaskeened private label marked "Marshall & Bragg - Rutland, Vt. - 17J. - Safety Pinion." [eBay #143151430356] Features are more consistent with a Special Order Grade 182.
Changes since this report was submitted:
Grade changed from Maiden Lane to 182
Jewels changed from 24j to 17j
Movement Finish changed from Two-Tone to Gold Flashed
