    Old? pocket watch case Updated!

    Got out for a bit to a site where an old church building is being torn down. Didn't really find much at first but newer coins, but as I was about to leave, I decided to hit a spot under a bush, and got a nice signal. Dug this little beauty at about 6 inches. First one I've ever dug so I'm happy with it. I soaked it in peroxide for a while, but there's no marks on it anywhere. The disk next to it is the inside of the back with 2 winding holes.

    Got bored tonight so I cleaned the case some more. Found a really nice spiral engraving on the back cover.....

    I found all the engraving on the inner case tonight. It reads "Patent Lever" "Montandon" "Locle" Used to be a really nice watch.
