    Copperpots,1910 Elgin watch pics

    Here are pics of the 1910 Elgin watch that Chester Copperpot found in his yard. It is 10K "Rolled" Gold, I have no clue what "Rolled" means. You can still even see the serial number. It has definatly seen better days but is a great find none the less.

    I had a small pocket knife single blade that I found once(not Mding) that said the same thing.Rolled Gold. I dont know what it means but if I can find it I'll post a picture of it too. Tell Chester good going and tell him to stay out of your yard next time.

    Rolled gold - a product resulting from fusing over a base metal a thin layer of gold,and then rolling it into sheets of varying thicknesses.Cool find !! WTG!!

    The watch ain't really that bad. A little duct tape and 3-in one oil probably could have it running in no time! . JIM
