This FOB has the original strap and buckle. All parts are in great shape. Is there anyway to tell the age and the possible original source of this FOB? Any estimate of the value?
Thank you.

    First, thank you for your rapid response and comments. Do not see any type of markings on the back. Will add the reverse for your view.
    Again, thanks for your thoughts.

    Looks like a WW1 era watch fob.

    The insignia is for Coast Artillery Corps (CAC), which was responsible for large guns deployed along the US coast line/ harbor defense in static defensive positions. The CAC also conducted the same mission in US controlled areas (Panama/ Philippines, etc...).

    Some CAC units did deploy and serve in WW1 as conventional artillery units.

    Will check under strap ASAP. Will also magnify back to search.

    Just finish carefully evaluating the piece for a hallmark. Nothing was found.
    I do appreciate all the input/comments.
    Thank you.
    PS I received notice that I incorrectly posted this item in the wrong category. I understand the web master has recategorized this. Don't know what that will mean as for as further input from others.

    I now understand. I also have now viewed the site in more detail and see your tremendous contributions.
    This is a wonderful forum. I hope to be a part of it as time and my limited knowledge in the the area permits.
    With yours an Scott's input, I will consider the mystery solved.
