    Help dating/confirming Junghans, mov. J98

    Hello all, I have this Junghans, 15 jewels:



    sorry no movement pic, but on the movement has J98 so this is the movement:

    bidfun-db Archive: Watch Movements: Junghans 698.70 (J98, J98/1, J98/9)

    So i already know it will be from 1951 on, I have looked and searched and only found one post here on WUS that mentioned that there should be a Letter/number under the balance wheel and that will give month and year.

    So I looked, quite hard to see it but there is what looks like a B and 3, so I am thinking: does it mean February/1953?

    Can anyone confirm this please?

    Thank you
