E. Howard & Co. “No. 5 Regulator” banjo REISSUE, 1977.  Well, there’s no documentation and no label, but this clock is too new and too perfect to be anything but a reissue. Howard reissued this model in 1977.  The 29-inch mahogany case has a polished finish with three perfect glasses; the dial is signed, the hands correct, the 8-day, time-only movement is signed and running, driven by a No. 5 iron weight.  There is a weight shield, pendulum tie-down, polished bob, and a No. 5 winder.  Perfect.  I can’t find a sale of No. 5 reissue, but originals sell for over $600.  $400–$600.
