7H101 The Imp
is probably the hardest of all Telechrons to find in perfect shape except
maybe for the Electrolarm (gold trim) or
Satellite (silvering). The case
is nearly always chipped. I have one a project Imp in pieces
all over the house but one of those pieces is a perfect butterscotch
catalin case. The guts of this clock are from the Guest
brown Imp, now brown-green. The bronze-colored back may be close
to the original color. When I got the clock, it
was missing the set shaft. The pinion, set spring and collar
were all rattling around inside. Luckily, I had just what I needed
in the parts box. That and a new cord were all the clock needed.
No chips or cracks-- not bad for $2.50. Incedentally, there was a
date on the inside of the case of Feb 17, 1941. Unfortunately, I
took it right off during cleaning.
