    Hi Folks,

    I'm looking to raise some funds and may be selling off an Elgin A-11 so I'm wondering if any of you can give me an idea as to:

    a) the authenticity of the piece and it's components and
    b) a ballpark value figure.

    I've had a look online and have dated the workings to 1944 which fits the casing (Dustproof model) however the second hand doesn't have the darker rear tip but does have the curvature at the front tip (something not found on repro parts).

    As for the "Elgin" on the face I have only seen this on a handful of models.

    Any help is greatly appreciated as always.

    this guy is the best in my book as to repair work. I had him do the mech work on a Weems navigation watch a few yrs back & will send my late 50's Omega Seamaster to him if it ever needs a tune up.
