Yet another Hammond day and date calendar clock the "Tripoli", 1938. Unlike their "Gregory" calendar clocks, this one and the "Dayton" have open rotors that can be repaired with a little effort and elbow grease, the "Gregory" has closed rotors that are encased, but they too can be repaired, but not very easily. Hammond clocks with open rotors have the piece of metal hanging near the cord.
This clock is in near perfect shape with a few dings and a scratch or two. The minute hand, like the Dayton, is stylized with a circle. Beautiful little shelve clock. It is an alarm clock also, the day and date functions work, and the clock runs and keeps good time, the alarm also work.
