Thanks for your responses, Tom. Another interesting Hamilton design.
It was not a successful model (likewise, the Cross Country), was discontinued after 1957, and is somewhat scarce today. A jewelry store I had been patronizing was going out of business and contacted me about two of these. They were asking $200 ($100 ea.) so I bought them, kept the nicest one, and sold the other for $200. :D
