    This is a box of items (cufflinks, tie tacks, watch, etc etc..) that was my grandfathers and my great-grandfathers. Not sure which of these items belonged to either of them.

    There are no markings on the cufflinks pictured.
    The watch is marked HAMILTON on the face and on the back of the watch it is marked PAT. PEND'G 14K GOLD S&W, the s&w is in a box. I have not opened the watch to see any other markings, I'm scared I'll break something.... I'm clumsy. Watch is working beautifully!

    Any info would be awesome! Thanks!

      from Wikipedia: The American Protective League was an American organization of private citizens that worked with federal law enforcement agencies during the World War I era to identify suspected German sympathizers and to counteract the activities of radicals, anarchists, anti-war activists, and left-wing labor and political organizations.

      Awesome! Thanks for the info. I wondered if that badge was my grandfathers or great-grandfathers, now I know it was my great-grandfathers based on the time period in which the League operated.

      It is one of those Siam dancers..... I don't know if they have a technical term or not. I have a matching set of cuff links.

      LOL.... tell you what.... $1.5 million and the box and contents are yours.... and I'll even pay the shipping!! :)

      I'm sure you're right. I also have a bracelet, locket and earrings that look the same. I think he got those for my grandmother.

      That Hamilton is worth some $$ if its solid gold it should say only gold if its solid Thats the case which is the gold it would be mixed metal inside because gold is to soft for some parts. I had a Hamilton Pocket pocket watch which look average no one would give me any $ for it finally one buyer said $1,200 so be careful i vived in Thailand s a kid so have seen a ton of Cufflinks, Pearls, Gold, Brass.
