Here is a tin fob that is 1.64 inches in diameter. Above the photo it says, Portland Centennial Celebration August 6-8, 1913. Below the photo are the names of the men. I can't make out the names on the top row, the bottom row from left appears to be, David Benjamin, David McGreagor, ?, ?, Mead, M., members there 17.
Any comments welcome

    Are you sure it's a watch fob? It looks like a pin or badge to me. I'm not an expert in this area, but I do recall this type of photo badges being popular at one time.

    Thanks for the info! If I had a pocketwatch, maybe I'd use something like this as a fob.

    "Do I take it correctly PWCollector is Pocket Watch Collector?"
    Yes Jason, I do dabble in pocket watches.
    Great article you have on fobs.

    This looks like a celebration badge that would have been issued on a ribbon with a large fancy brooch. The old guys look like a group of civil war vets but since there are no GAR badges to be seen I would guess that these fellows are possibly the local old settlers club.

    I am so sorry I was so rude in the beginning, not to say thank you for all the appreciation given. I think I have now caught up with all my post and given thanks.
