Love the American Clippers.  Reading though the post of the other AC it looks like there isn't actually an ad for an "A".  This is from an ad I just got.  So it would appear with a band is "B", with a bracelet "D".  What do we assign without any band/bracelet?

I sure would like to find the bracelet like the one in the ad...make that 2, one for this one and one for my 36 F

Well Jabs' example 1939 ad above shows it was available with a tan pigskin band.

I just happened to have an old tan pigskin band laying around that fit it just right

That does look like a re-dial, but definitely 1938 American Clipper 'B'
