I am selling a Chelsea ships 12 inch clock, serial # 34422.

Customer Question

I am selling a Chelsea ships bell 12 inch clock, serial # 34422. Originally purchased by
G. E. Butler in San Francisco in 1908. We inherited this clock in Sept. 2005. Is it possible
to determine the value at that time for tax purposes?

Please send a clear, in-focus close up of the text on the face of the clock and the back side.

I have the back which is a rough casting with a number scratched into it.
Also the data from Chesea.
