Nyiice!

I'd be searching for a dust cover and ring for this bad boy.

It has the dust cover and retainer.  They were off for a clear picture.

Late 1927 second release Lone Eagle. This is a good example to show what the original lum paint color was.

From another discussion on this site I figured that this was the second release.  The other thread mentioned the closed 9 as well as the first release being only 5000.

I was very lucky when I picked this up at the end of August.  was listed as:

 

Vintage Bulova 14K Gold Filled Ladies Watch "Running"

 

The bidding was me and three other people and I was able to get it home for $116 total.

 

Every now and then I get lucky and that helps make up for the counterfeits and frankenbullys

that I occasionaly end up with
