Howard N-Size with Abbott Conversion

New postby 4brokenow » Fri Jan 11, 2019 3:38 am

Hoping perhaps I could get some help regarding info on this Howard N-size with an interesting Stem wind conversion. How rare is this feature? Does this enhance the value of the wstch? Were these done at the factory? This one appears to be in good shape and is fully functional. The Howard serial# 34514. I have been unable to find another example of a Howard of any kind showing the conversion installed under the dial.

Thanks Much!

Hi Phil.
I don't know much about Howard's but you could contact Clint Geller thru the NAWCC MB and he can answer your question.
Thanks <Jim
