This is a circa 1876 Waltham size 8s (not 6s with this serial number) 18k hunter case pocket watch with

a 7-jewel Riverside movement. The value of this watch is $2500 to $3000 retail.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are Varagesale.com, Ioffer.com, OfferUp.com, Ebay and letgo.com.
You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.
