***Hamilton 17j Grade 928 THE AUGLAIZE Wapakoneta, Ohio FANCY DIAL Circa: 1895. Extremely rare, Hamilton Jewelers custom model created in the first 33 months of Hamilton's existance. Hamilton Watch Co. was new on the watch market and was much more accomodating to Jewelers to increase sales. Serial Number 26862. Created especially for The Auglaize County, Wapakoneta, Ohio in 1895 (Jeweler, as of yet, unknown).
HISTORY: Wapakoneta County was founded in 1782. The Shawnee and Seneca Indians were residents of Wapakoneta for 2000 years and continued to live at Wapakoneta until the United States forced them to leave in 1831, as part of Indian Removal to lands west of the Mississippi River. The Treaty of Wapakoneta and the Treaty of Lewistown resulted in the forced removal of the Shawnees and Senecas to Kansas.
European-American settlers quickly replaced the native population. In 1848, the Ohio legislature created Auglaize County out of parts of Mercer and Allen Counties. Early county voters chose Wapakoneta as the county seat in a disputed contest with rival town Saint Marys. For the next 150 years, Auglaize County residents primarily were devoted to agriculture. Clean, running and truly wonderful. THIS IS A FINE COLLECTIBLE. DON'T INVEST IN THE STOCK MARKET. BUY SOMETHING PROVEN IN TIME.
