I just traded an item to a gentleman that was worth more then what he had to trade and he used this to settle the difference. He claimed it was his great grandfathers. On the inside it reads, Hamilton Watch Co. Lancaster, PA. 17 jewels. Then there is what I think to be the serial number which is 896657. On the back of the case it reads, Gaurenteed 2o Years Philadelphia Watch Case Co. 9470364. There are also names engraved into it in very small letters with some dates ie 4/74, 8/9/72, and 10/62. I didnt include the names for privacy reasons as i dont know the persons that wrote them. On the case it also reads a dozen or so really tiny 4 digit numbers. Can any one tell me what these could mean or how old this peice is?
