I bought a Hamilton 956 in a "display case" and I'd like to put it a real case. The 956 isn't lever set so I'm wondering will it fit into a "railroad" case? or do I need to find some obscure case?
Thank and aloha

Most any "positive setting" 16 size case with a male stem will work fine. The vast majority of "standard" 16 size cases are made as such, even if they also have a lever cut-out in them.

Avoid the late Hamilton 992/992E/992B cases as most of them are lever set only.

GrounchOldGuy...I second Ben's notion. Most any USA Made 16s case will accept your 956, although some are lever-set only. You might want to scout around for a case that had a Hamilton originally, so that the case screw marks will line up with your 956.

You may also be interested in knowing that quite a few folks like display cases that are signed...I have examples by Hamilton and Illinois, and I enjoy showing folks what these old pieces look like inside. Michael.
