PREMIER 18s CASE & MOVEMENT SERIAL NUMBERS

Introduced in 1890 as a 14K GF 21Yr. case and about 1899/1900 marketed as a 25 Yr. case.

You will notice only one 16s case in this section, initially I thought I had made a mistake but the 1900 Goldsmiths’ Catalogue shows Premier cases in both 16s & 18s 

Premier came only as inside screw cases (ISC). It was used on some  SILVEROID and COIN cases which were marketed in the 1900 Goldsmiths’ Catalogue as “premier style”
