Hi Mike,The model number is ***** The registered serial number is ***** dated 10/24/85. It's a #185 triple chime cable driven movement. Along with learning its value, I truly would appreciate learning what companies or select individuals would be interested in purchasing this clock and how might I contact them.Thank you.

Hi Linda, Your Howard Miller Grandfather Clock model 610-178 has a value in today's market in good body & running condition $1375.00 to excellent body & running condition $1750.00. Remember when you go to sell your clock to start out high because you can always come down you can not go up. You can try sites like Etsy, Ebay, Craigeslist or I would try a reputable local auction house but use a reserve so the clock doesn't sell for pennies on the dollar. I hope this helps you. Thanks Mike

Hi Mike. Am very delighted with your quick response and your answer. I do have another question. On paypal account it says repetitive monthly billing and charge. I signed up for a one time question and answer. How do I get this corrected?
Thank you.

Hi Linda, I do not have anything to do with the billing you will have to get with customer service, I run my own antique & clock repair shop. Thanks Mike
