    Hi all,

    Can anybody tell me what the original 1959 crystal of a Pie Pan (case 14381) was. Did it already have the logo in it?

    I just did a swift buy and started to ask the proper question later... ;)

    Thanks!

    I don’t recall the crystal part number, but yes, the original crystal would have been signed.

    Here is the original, low profile crystal and the size of the replacement.

    I chose to polish the original for my 14381.

    search my postings on this reference and you'll find Archer's Omega part number

    Wow, what a difference. Is that small Omega logo inscription actually in the inside or the outside?

    Inside. The originals were also very lightly etched compared with the later replacements.
