Doesn’t happen very often but my two collecting interest came together a few years ago and presented me with this nice little historical item.
A WW1 iron cross set with the bearers pocket watch in a convenient little patriotic pot 😮
The pot is .800 silver, uncleaned 😳 and it’s just a neat little personal item..
Hope you enjoyMarch 26, 2014 at 4:35 pm #56790

Ze Vatch A German maker but I couldn’t find any info on him/them. The case bears the German silber hallmarks of the half moon/crown.
Most WW1 and pre, iron crosses were made of/contained varying amounts of Silver and some of the first class medals also bore the same half moon crown designation of minimum 0.800 silver content.

The watch cleaned up very nicely and has a silver case with rose gold edging, a very pretty little 16 size time keeper, now running I might addMarch 26, 2014 at 5:26 pm #56793tmac1956Participant
