Value can change: The value of an item is dependent upon many things, including the condition of the object itself, trends in the market for that kind of object, and the location where the item will be sold.
While not completed, there has been significant progress this year for Gruen, Keystone, and Star manufactured cases.
Prior to this table there was only Wadsworth serial numbers that had been decoded.
You can then read the year the case was manufactured using the dates going down the table.

Decoding Gruen case and movement serial numbers has been a multi-year, team effort.
I want to thank Barry "Bazzab" Cooper, Bernd "Barney" Riemann, and Cathy Orbista for their significant contributions to the project.
