Elgin Box Hinged

I am out of touch with current pocket watch prices as I've moved my interests over to torsion clocks, so I would be interested to know what this one might be worth. I sold it this week and I'm wondering if I undersold it, or oversold it at US$370.
It is a 16s box-hinged Elgin convertible movement dating from 1887, in a Dueber plated case, and an issue with the hand setting train.

Sounds ok to me especially since it is not working properly.

I think you did OK with $370. That is a scarce case. Maybe 5-10 years ago you would have gotten more money. But you should be happy with that number. The movements when running are worth about $50.

Irwin, nice case by the way, the hardest thing to find for an Elgin Convertible.
