The clock is running strong and keeping good time compared to an accurate quartz watch and is striking the bells each half
hour in proper sequence. There are some minor casting irregularities on the case which are mainly along the flange. The face
has one small light smudge over the “6” and much of the bluing on the hands is faded. Other

it is almost 90 rears old, we recommend it be wound about every four days for best timekeeping.
