452  "The Copley"

Cast bronze. Verde antique finish. 6" square 3 1/4" deep.

DID it or DIDN'T it come with a sweep hand?  The clock's official publicity shot showed the clock with a screw stuck in that center.  My friend, Larry's "Copley" is the same way (unless he happened to buy that exact clock they used as a model.)  I've seen a couple with a sweep hand, too.  (Like the one in the Telechron book.)   Anyway, I think what probably happened is they Telechron girls put second hands on some and left them off others.  These early clocks are notorious for carrying each others hands and I think they probably just ran out alot.
