I'm trying to choose between three Elgin B. W. Raymonds. One of them, reportedly made in 1940, has a small star under the Elgin name on the face, the other two don't have the star (1923 &1924), what is the significance of the star? I realize the first three considerations are condition, condition and condition. Assuming all three are in similar condition, which of the three is the most desirable from a collector's standpoint?
Yes, I'm still waiting for my copy of Shubart's "Complete Guide..................... and just starting to build my horologic library so I'm sort of fumbling around in the dark at the present time and would greatly appreciate any help you more knowledgeable folks can give.
