Sleiste's 1920s H. Bettony Buffet
« on: June 29, 2020, 02:45:36 PM »
User Sleiste emailed me these pictures requesting more information.

I determined it to have a manufacture date of before 1923, as the single posts really put an upper bound on the dating.  The serial of S321 doesn't tell me too much personally.

The bell is stamped with "H Bettony Boston." I have seen several stamped with Carl Fischer, but I feel like this is the first one stamped by Bettony. Neat.

I appraised this with a maximum value of about $200-250.

Please post any opinions or corrections you have to my dating and appraisal.
