Sheila, I believe that is an Odd Fellows ribbon watch chain. You may have already known that, but I thought I'd mention in case you didn't. And I'm sure they are getting rarer. It's in very nice condition.

Greg Davis supplied that card for my posting of Restoration of an Adams & Perry Watch. It still is on the OLD chapter;

I copied it and put it where it belongs on Global Horology.

Look under Pocket Watches and click on Other Pocket Watches it islisted there.

For those who might want a source for watch tradecards other than ebay, here's a link to Ben Crane's tradecard auction site. Scroll to the watches and jewelry category for watch cards. Ben is a pillar in the tradecard community and I've scored some great cards from him. There's a nice group of six cards up now that I would be all over if I didn't have them already ;) .

here are a few billheads from my great, great, great grandfathers jewelry company from the 1800's showing a picture of their Centennial watch.
