I'm not quite sure what your latest post means. Perhaps you're referring to the fact that, along with the other parts you're selling separately for that otherwise white GF Beau Monde, your listing for the yellow GF bezel includes a photo of the underside as well as one of the front?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Illinois-Beau-Monde-Gest-Yellow-Gold-Plated-Bezel-Only-/262606503919?hash=item3d24913fef:g:m8MAAOSwFdtXydIY

To my eyes, at least, the picture of the underside looks too dark to tell what if any markings appear on it. Maybe someone else will have better luck. (Rick? Greg?)

Quite hard to believe someone would make a copy of the bezel.

The point is not to imply that this bezel is a copy of anything, but instead that it is a bezel for some other Beau Monde/Beau Geste, not the one whose other case parts you have in your two other listings (you originally presented these three parts as being for one watch). As Fred Friedberg, the acknowledged authority on Illinois watches, pointed out earlier in the thread (back on page 3), " This model never came in this color/case configuration . Illinois never offered a model with a yellow bezel and a white center and white case back. Someone apparently put the bezel from a YGF model on to this WGF case."

From what I can tell from his last book, there are 3 known examples of
the Greyhound on the planet... NONE have ever been photographed or shown
to the public. I believe Fred MAY have one in the book to show...
HOW COOL would that be?!?

It is supposed to have a Skyway case with a Porcelain dial marked
"Illinois Greyhound"

We shall see!!!
