I have one w/ the raised crystal like similar to this.  I've seen a couple others over the years, so it musta been an easy fit crystal replacement w/ the wrong crystal for the LEII

Case serial # would suggest '31. I know that in '31 the LE III was introduced so is this an early '31?

Yep I think the case SN suggests 1931.  Record likely dated from sheild on mvnt.

What do folks think about updating production date to 1931 based on first digit of case serial number?

Yep, 1931, and that would make it the Charles.

Review by Panel. 1931 would make this a Charles, unless there was a cut over period later in the year for the Charles.

Charles for me based on the case date for 1931.

Yea I'll go with Charles, even if there were some overlap in the two models during that year. 

Edit:  The movement picture went missing, but the system generated small thumbnail is still there.
