These were made later on by the Star Watch Case Co on account for a famous Illinois collector decades ago. These have the bar over crown feature which make these great for Hamilton collectors. They are signed "*10K Goldfiilled" at the bottom of the frame. My examples are UNUSED and New Old Stock as obtained from the Dr. W D Bundens estate which I acquired in '89. The Doc frequently used glass back cases and these were left over remainders from his massive estate. These have they original new crystals and are ready to go for your use. These type of cases are especially nice as they do not tarnish like the nickel or usual white brass GB cases we all like to use. $250.00 ea. ppd.

(I believe I have only three left--these are beautiful, quality cases.)

Not to my knowledge. I guess one could take two cases and SWITCH two bezels on to one frame and "make" one.
