Thanks for the extra pics/explanation!

I agree with the date and name now, 1921 LM in a rare unengraved cushion case.

I agree, it's all Bulova and certainly a 1921 Lady Maxim. Added photos are just what we needed.

Slindley2012, I think your fortunate to have this lovely keepsake from your Grandmother, I hope you have fond memories of her as well. I'm a big fan of heirlooms, this is a wonderful example, congratulations.

I know we can't discuss price but I am afraid to list it on eBay without knowing what to expect. I really am clueless on this. How can I go about finding this info? I have tried to find similar watches but am not having any luck. Sorry to ask this on te forum.

The Triangle in the Movement Symbol field is not referring to a date code, but another symbol we see on some of these early movements .  Other examples are usually  little trapezoids or triangles w/ some number(s) inside. The Bulova W. Co sig indicates the movement pre-dates the known date code system.  Maybe we change from Triangle to None?

Edit:  I think I'm seeing the globe on the inside case back?
