That's a 502 movement and dial from a model 1451 in a non-Elgin case. Several companies used that style of case and it was popular as a replacement for worn factory cases. Joel

THANK YOU SO MUCH, Joel. Very kind of you.

So what would be a good source for identifying Elgin models (such as the 1451) and movements and dials (such as the 502), with their corresponding proper cases?
