I saw this the other day while searching for Lone Eagles. In the description the seller said the case had a patten number dated to 1924. So I send him an email asking how could it be 24 when the flight didn't happen untill 27? He tells me that this is one of the original 5000 watches issued. After the the first issue the cases had a patten date of 1927. What do you think boys? http://www.rubylane.com/item/384376-3811/First-Release-Bulova-Lindbergh-Lone
Still not worth what he's asking.
