A Howard 23-jewel 1902 pocket watch with chain in original box and papers

in 14kt gold has a value of $600 if it is a hunter case and $400 if it is an open face (no cover over the dial).

The same watch in a gold-filled case is worth $150-$175. Look on the inside case or the cuvee covering the movement

for the 14k mark to be sure. If the words "guaranteed 25 years" or other wording to that effect is there, then it is gold-filled and not gold.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are Offerup.com (local), Varagesale.com (local) , Wanelo.com, http://www.decluttr.com, Bonanza.com, Ioffer.com, Etsy.com,
Ebay and letgo.com (local).

You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.

Please do click the stars now for this one (bonuses are also welcome!), it is very important for me
to get good feedback for answering.
