      ttomtucker, in response to your wristwatch, I was wondering if it might have "Tommy Ticker" printed on the dial. If so, those were a popular watch back in the 1920's , 30's and 40's. I have a pocket watch posted with that Logo.

      kerry10456, I rechecked the watch and it's printed Tommy Tucker. there were several "Tucker" items out there besides the Tucker car, there was Tommy Tucker Soda, Tom Tucker Southern Style Soda, Tommy Tucker Nursery Rhyme.

      I would love to see it, wondering who mightwho have made it. If it has to do with the 1940's singer or maybe predates it. might be a private label for Tom Tucker autos also.

      Very cool piece Tom, I had one of these in pieces last year and sold it for good money on ebay. Hard to find them in this great condition!
