I know nothing about watches, however, my google search turned up this thread on a watch forum referencing eagle hallmarks. Interesting read. You might want to post it there, as I'm sure someone will be able to I.D. it fairly easily.

I couldn't find anything in connection with the 'S & H'.

When I want to determine a hallmark I go to the library. There is a book on all hallmarks. Frank...
