While working at an auction this weekend I managed to buy this ships clock. I'm not sure who makes it or if it is even original, there is no name on the face and haven't taken it apart to look inside for clues yet either. The sale was strong due to location, so most items were out of my comfort range. I bought the foo dogs and WWI Suhl bayo just in case they were getting good money like I expected so threw them in the mix and there gone now too. I cut my leg pretty bad removing stainless bar sinks I bought to scrap for a few bucks and regret that now, probably the worst cut in my life, have to tough it out again.
Does anyone know if this is authentic ? I have 20 in it.

    So you are coming across before I get home. Use aloe gel on the cut & hope it heals soon. If not, be sure to put me in your Will. Don't wait too long so I can send my address!:-) Don't guess I would have made a good nurse as I would have blank Powers of Attorney in my pocket at all times.

    You never know when your done, so I do need to get something official because I think my estate auction would do ok. I flushed with peroxide and have been putting large gauze pads with tons of Neosporin a few times a day. It's pretty grim looking and I have to watch with mrsa twice before, got it 1st in the hospital years ago after construction accident at U of Del. The commercial equipment went low at the sale. The binnacle brought $1200

    After it's dry, use the aloe gel(in the bottle seems as good as fresh). It forms a protective seal against bacteria & helps healing also. Back to your poste. $1,200 with no name? I need to start picking up nautical crap/stuff at home then. No telling how much money I've missed making?

    the green one went for 600 I think and it said US navy department 1942 by lionel corp. and the one with the balls may have been a lionel also. Telegraphs were in 140 range, the foot horn did around 350, it had a mining safety co. brass tag. forget the name.

    The lamps did 100 - 180 each, the wood half section boat with the engineering writing on it went around 400, the brass looking anchors around 160 each, the harpoons surprisingly did 80-130 each, I thought they were fugazi, the big oars did 80 and guy took all 11 x 80, seemed too high
