Rare Simon Willard banjo clock unrestored original condition complete runs good extremely hard to find. Anybody that collects clocks especially banjo clocks knows how rare of find this is. When is the last time you seen one for sale you may never get the opportunity again. I would prefer you pick it up rather than ship it do not want to take a chance of any damage. I will ship if necessary. I know that there is Skeptics out there that's a Simon Willard never signed a clock. But the bottom line is nobody can prove or disprove he did not sign a clock. Unless you lived back in that time and new Simon Willard you are just speculating.
