Customer Question

I have an elgin 387 in a nicely engraved white metal case. Any idea what metal this might be?
JA: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

JA: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?
Customer: Not that I have
