This is not a pick per se, but I did pick it from the plethora of antiques my family has collected over the years. It's not for sale, but would like to know whether is has a high monetary retail value, and whether or not it's gold or brass. It is an Illinois Bunn Special, 21 jewel pocket watch. I believe it's from 1921 based on serial number 3845304, and it says "adjusted temp. and 6 six positions" on the inside of the watch. The backing of the case says, "Philidelphia Watch Case Co." and "twenty years" directly below that. The serial number on the case is 9169566, and it is hand engraved on the left with 348H, 55357 on the top, and 51-4-63K on the right. I used a high powered magnet on the case backing, and it's not magnetic. So I figured it's either pure brass, or gold. Anything, anyone could tell me about my Great Grandfather's watch would be great. Thank you so much!!
