Let me have your thoughts on the value of a 16S Elgin Grade 4 in a very nice silver Dueber drum hunter case with crisp engraving including an elk. The nickel movement is 15j, adjusted with microregulator, very clean and running strong. Seller asking $225, will probably go slightly lower. Thanks in advance for any input.

Hey Dan-

I am not an Elgin guy but the case alone is worth close to that figure.
16s drum HC in silver is about $175-$200 depending on condition. I don't think the movt is worth much, but I'm guessing on that part.

Thanks, Neil. The great case really makes this watch appealing. I'm not crazy about Elgin either, but the adjusted movement is bright nickel and fairly high grade for it's day. I think the case is original to the watch. I'm sorely tempted if I can bargain the price down a bit.
