  Circa 1896, Lever Set, Adjusted to positions (unmarked), RR Grade/Approved, in this time period, this is a very nice 18S Elgin Grade 164 Hunter! They don't come much cleaner or nicer, folks..check this one out!

Case... is a beautiful B&B Royal 20 Yr Hunting Case in extra nice condition. Beautiful engraved front and back, shows very nice. This was the creme of the crop in gold filled hunting cases back then! Opens and closes perfectly, looks fantastic as you can see. Tasteful personalization on dust cover. These 18S Hunter cases in this condition are really tough to acquire anymore, and cost dearly when you do find one as you know. This one is priced right! Beautiful Survivor! Nice B&B Royal Hunting Case!

Movement... is Elgin's Grade 164 BW Marked Adjusted. Running well. Two Year Only Production (1895-96) and only 5000 ever made! Beautiful nickel plates and unusual font lettering show as new. This would have been accepted on all rail lines in 1896. Very nice Grade 164 Movement!

There were lots of nice timepieces in the 1890s era, costing many, many times as much. None were any nicer, finer built, or kept better time than these American Railroads! To come onto one this clean and nice is a treasure! These will continue to appreciate in value, especially clean, nicer 18 Size Hunter examples like this one. Beautiful all original Elgin Grade 164 Hunter from 1896!......$349.00

Only 4000 total of these 274 Hunters were made, including marked grade 274, unmarked 274, marked #349, Father Time, BW Raymond, and this Veritas. Elgin database says roughly 1300 of the Veritas made, few if any are ever seen, most remain locked up in collections. Elgin only produced these for 4 years...1901-1904.
This is a first year production 274, made in 1901...the 537th made. #9625537. Check out that gorgeous damaskeening on this one!

15 yr J Boss Plain Polished HC in great shape opens and closed properly shows a little side wear at bottom...front and back no wear thru as you can see. Tight Bow, good crown. New Glass crystal fitted as well. Nothing was left out so it would be ready for you to show off and enjoy

DS correct roman dial looks perfect, nice hands.

3/4 Plate Movement is stunning! Running flawlessly, if you want one of Elgin's finest 18S Hunters, first year for this model as well as the highest jeweled Elgin 18 Size Hunter made here is a fine example of one.

Price on this beauty is only $649, and well worth that considering the full restoration that has already been done. Stunning Veritas "274" 21 Jewel Hunter!

Folks, if you collect these beautiful Elgins, this would definitely belong in your portfolio as well. There were lots of nice timepieces in the Pre-WW1 era. None were any nicer, finer built, or better quality than this Veritas! To come onto one fully reconditioned this clean is a treasure! Beautiful 21J Elgin #274 Veritas Hunter with Full Restoration...Has It All!.......$649.00
