Customer Question
Second opinion] I do...

Second opinion] I do. I have a desk/mantel clock from West Germany and I don't know where to go to find it's value and/or sell it.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

Since I don't know anything about clocks, I don't know what to tell you.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

It is key wound. The tune selector print on the inside says Silent, Whittington, st. Michael, Westminster. The numbers printed on back side of the clock say 74 and below it says 1050-020 and Made in West Germany.
