Byrd comes to mind, call me crazy, but I wouldn't do it. Any ideas?

Hi Roger. No that Secometer has no inscription on the back. It cost 132.00 new in ‘46 or ‘48. Wow that’s some serious bread back then eh? :o
OK thanks for the clarification about the lack of inscription.

Significant bucks indeed; around $1500 in today's terms.

Re: Hamilton Prototype Cases-Some used by Hamilton

That pentagonal model would have been cool.

Is the label on the back decipherable?
