Hello, my name is Glenda.
It is very important to be able to see what the customer has in order to give a correct informed value! .Here are instructions for sending images several ways, you can choose which one best fits you , be sure it is uploaded to your computer,.
If you do not see the blue button that states attach file at the bottom of your page here are instructions to upload images !.Click the link: for instructions on uploading images .http://ww2.justanswer.com/how-do-i-send-photo-or-file-expert . Or you may use this method:.Go to www.imgur.com.click on Computer.Select the picture file from the box that pops up..Hit open..Click on Start Upload.And then copy the link they give you (it will look similar to this http://www.imgur.com/xxxx) and paste it here..Or:Send them like this: In an Email! This can take awhile depending on how busy they are at Just answer, they do forward them to me. .Send the picture to ,***@******.***, in the subject line put " Pictures for Glenda B in Antiques"..In the body of the message put , your user name and name..Make sure to send these from the same address that you registered with just answer with , so they know who you are. If you send from a phone the email address on the phone you use has to match the email address you used to register on the justanswer site with. . Sometimes it can take over 24hrs, depending on how busy the site is. We the appraisers are not employees of the Just Answer site, we come to the site to answer questions, we do not work there. They get photos in from customers, they then send them to the correct departments ( categories, ) then they are forwarded to the appraisers. I have no control over how fast all of this happens. I will let you know as soon as they send them to me..Glenda
I am not sure what you got, I have not answered this at all. I need to see pictures in order to answer it.. could it have been an email that says, " the expert has responded to you"
As I stated it can take up to 24hrs for them to forward to us.
I got the picture of the watch, can you tell me if there is any other name on this besides Connor?
I found in further research, 1800's M.C. Conner, Burlington Iowa Rockford Watch Co., Illinois M.C. Conner, Burlington Iowa Gilt, Transitional, M C Conner Private Label Jeweler.
I can give you the market value for this if you like?
They way to determine the value is like we do with all private label watches. The watch is made by the Rockford Watch Company the case was produced by the Brooklyn Watch Case Company. These two companies commonly made watches for private label jewelers like yours was. I just need to know if the case is marked 14 kt gold?
What serial number did you use? The one from the case or the one inside by the works?
If this is written on the case, that is the serial number for the case, the watch serial number is ***** the inside by the works. I need to see the serial number on the watch.
No, that was not mentioned that I can find.
. I have been in the antique business for over 45 years, Appraising, Antique shop owner, also buying and selling on today's current market. it is my pleasure to put my experience to work for you. . The 14 kt Gold Pocket Watch, has an estimated value on the current market for an average of $1***-**-****.00 depending on the condition and where it is for sale at. These will typically sell higher in an Antique Shop or Private sale compared to an auction. If you are thinking of selling, you might want to check your local Antique Shops in the area to see what yours or one like it would sell for or has sold for, then you can decide to sell online or locally..Keep in mind that not all estimated values are obtained, your geographic area plays a big role in what prices can be obtained. If you plan on selling this I would list this for sell on the internet where it will have the largest shopping market. There are some great sites you can sell from. .You can sell on Etsy, which is a great place to sell from, you list Vintage Items, they can stay until they sell. Much like having a little store online. There is also Rubylane, which is a more upscale site where people sell more expensive items. There is also Tias and GoAntiques, which is on the same scale of Rubylane. There is Amazon Market Place, ArtFire and of course Ebay. All of these sites get you a lot of World Wide exposure and bring the best traffic. They are all great! If you sell to a dealer, antique shop or resell shop you can expect to get about 30-40% of what it is worth since they have to resell the item.. Please ask any question you might have about your answer before rating this. If you find you have a problem being able to rate me, please let me know..It was a pleasure working for you. If you have more items you would like to ask me about, just start a new question addressed to "Glenda" it would be my pleasure to help you..
