This was my great grandmothers given to me by my granddaddy. Besides being seth thomas what kind(name) is the, how old? Any idea of value?

Answer
This a "Metal Series #4" and was probably made c. 1900. Sometimes the date is stamped on the back or bottom. It consists of a letter for the month and then the year backwards. eg B 5981 = Feb. 1895. They were not always marked. I looked at quite a few different Metals models. In general they seem to sell in the $100-150 range. Do you have the missing piece? If not, that will affect the value. There also appears to be a small piece broken off on the center top.
