My mother tells me that her(my mother) grandmother got the clock when my mom was 5,born 1949. the inside door says General Time Corporation and when i look inside 1954 is scratched on the metal of clock backing, which would be when my mom was 5 or 6. Just FYI

I have my father's Seth Thomas Lynton 1E model E511-000 that he bought in 1946 and the back of the instruction door says "Seth Thomas Clocks" "Division of General Time Corporation."  The clock is entirely original.

Well, I hate to dispute your answer but my clock says Division of General Time Corporation.  It belonged to my Grandfather who died in 1966.
