Brimfield 302 4 for $55

Doug Rose:
Here is today's attempt to bring it back to life...Doug

Doug Rose:
It came out very nice, whatever was on it had dried like paste.

Brasso with Mr Clean Eraser Bar...repeat.....repeat

But the find was the dial, a working III 37 5H. These are not as easy find for your early 302s.

All dates match 10 46 except the dial  8)...Doug

Looks like "53L" on the governor. If so, it was lubricated in 1953.

I haven't seen the vermilion star before. Some later 5H dials have an asterisk.

The contact springs have been updated at some point (originally had the 4H type), but it is still a dial much more difficult to find than a 4H or converted 2A>4H.
