Grandfathers clock was purchased by my Grandfather [as used] after the Philadelphia exposition in 1900. Clock is in perfect working condition with a few scratches on case.

My apologies for the delay. The photos were routed to my spam folder, possibly because of the zip file.
I did not get the requested photo of the Herschede markings, can I see that? And what is the serial number on the clockworks?
I am assuming that the 1800 on your first post is a typo, as Herschede incorporated in 1902, and the earliest examples are from around 1885.
