Please give me the serial number from the movement (where the gears are).

Let me know if the watch is silver (says sterling or 925 inside) or gold (14k)

or gold-filled (the words guaranteed or warranted inside the case) and whether

the watch has a hinged cover over the dial in addition to the glass crystal.

This is an 1889 Elgin size 6s hunter case ladies pocket watch

gold-filled (not gold if in a Dueber case)

with a 7-jewel, grade 95 model 1 movement.

The value of this watch is $100 to $140 in working condition.

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.
