Gold Pocket Watch & Silver
Quote this message in a reply
Fluke & I hit FOUR separate spots today. The first three we found some odds & ends at, however, wasn't until the last spot that we redeemed ourselves Happy

I snagged two pocket watches today. One is huge, but in rough shape. The other was down around a foot, and gave off a very bouncy whisper signal on my Safari. It appears to be gold plated on a tiny section around the rim of the face, however, the side and back look genuine, though I'm not 100%. It has a porcelain face. The artwork on the back is gorgeous. Really striking.

I also scored a porcelain knob assembly for an old faucet, a 1902 Indian, a sliced up 1926 merc & an old lipstick tube that says "Chantrey". Picked up 8 wheats, too.

Joe

Nice job Joe!  Those watches are very cool.  Any idea on the ages of them?
