Serial Number 2898721 was reported as inaccurate.

Note: Waltham serial # 2898721 in my possession is a pin
set with 13 jewels. (See my collection -
fffanatic). Otherwise seems to match database
through Waltham Gray Book. Does not show signs
that it's been modified, especially pin setting
method. Numbers on parts are matching.
Curator Response: Thanks for the report. This information has been noted in the research notes for this run.
