Additional Information

So... It's very apparent we have a Ladies Rite Angle here with a rare black dial.

 At some point it looks like her motor was replaced with a 1949 model.

I don't believe it changes it actual ID.  I find an original 1939 motor to put back in her

A broken 'motor' at that :-)

Another bucket list classic Bulova.

I've not noticed the back case markings before with the patent date.
