When I placed it aside it seems to chime additional times at the top of the hour. Im not really sure how the rest works but suspect there may be more to it than chime on chime off!
Clean with minor minor issues. You can see someone did not close it correctly and a small mark is underneath the lip only seen when opened (see pictures) brass is very clean, mounting holes appear unused.
