OK Folks, here's my Elgin USN BUSHIPS (your input requested)
Here it is! It looks to be 100% original, but the movement is in worse shape than I'd hoped. It has some rust, but not a great deal. Some goo (old lubricant?) but the balance will turn. This'll need (if it can be cleaned) new balance and mainsprings and the canteen anchor? has come loose from the case. The dial actually looks pretty good, and you can see the gloss black "ELGIN", the "dp" DuraPower logo and the "USN BUSHIPS" on it (the crystal is awful, and that's what makes the dial look so bad). Otherwise looks good
So tell me, what is it worth in this beat up condition?
