Lord Elgin Garrison

The Lord Elgin Garrison dates to 1955 according to an ad Magpie posted last week. My guess is that it is part of the Town and Country line.

Magpie, what a beautiful Elgin! I just got this Elgin yesterday, the Spencer. It dates from 1960 and uses a 19 jewel movement. http://grumpyguyinc.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/IMG_6398.jpg http://grumpyguyinc.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/IMG_6401.jpg http://grumpyguyinc.com/wp-content/uploads/20...

I had a Gruen day, month, Dante from the late 40s. Was advertised as completely running, but but the month and date didn't work. Returned it. Still looking to snag one.
