Authentic "Long Island Railroad" Early Seth Thomas # 2 Model Clock Case in Walnut Veneer with a reverse Paint Decorated Glass Only made between 1876 to 1880 !!!

Original Metal painted Dial with L.I. RR Monogram with Keystone Logo added after the PRR post 1900 takeover. Original 8 Day Brass Movement with Cast Iron Weight which slides down the wood divider chute with original Factory Paper label, and New York Jeweler's Service Label affixed over top. Direct from a 30+ year old Purist Railroad Clock Collection.

Clock Date identification note : Often mis-identified as a Model #1 these Early S/T Model 2's were made from 1860 to 1880, this one is narrowed down even more by the Original Lower Glass Tablet Decoration as dating from 1876 to 1880 ONLY.

The correct early movements have 4 Pinned Post construction, and the Hand Arbor is also Pinned. (There were No S/T signatures on these original dials from 1860 to 1879)

Original Movement : The 8 Day Brass Movement has already had 10 new bushings installed. Completely disassembled on 5-26-16, whereas all parts were individually Hand Cleaned and Oiled, as seen in the photos.

You have my personal Satisfaction Guarantee for a 7 Day inspection period on all my 8 day Clocks, over the normal 3 Day "No questions asked full item refund" Ruby Lane Policy. (less shipping fees)

Shipping : Will ship out on the "First Business Day" following a Sunday, after retrieving from a "Sunday's Only" Antique Mall in Adamstown,Pa..
