Re: Jolly Roger

Gorgeous plain-bezel JRs, RIck and Greg! (Greg: It's often hard to tell what is yellow gold and what is green gold, of course, but I believe the JR you posted must be GGF, as no records have been found of that model ever having been issued in yellow. -- The Catalog Queen) My bad B!

Re: Dial Hall of Shame

The font in the Illinois and the weird spacing on the "OIS" part is exactly the same. These two square dials were printer off the same blank.

Re: Sangamo

The only member who has posted one so far is Mr Toad. His example HAS the original dial and is really wonderful. Thanks for posting this, Greg!

Re: Sangamo

HI All, That is actually a very good price for the Sangamon Illinois model. The challenge will be trying to find the correct dial for it. I have had no luck in doing so for along time. As I mentioned earlier, I will explain why these dials are so difficult to come by in my new Book Set. Sorry I kee...
