Xxxxxx and I have a Gucci pipe cleaner that Bob Hope gave my

Customer Question

Hi my name is***** and I have a Gucci pipe cleaner that Bob Hope gave my grandfather , I would like to have it appraised!It is in good condition but needs cleaned because although when I found it(my grandfather never opened it) it was new in the box , I carried it around for awhile to show everybody , it says "one kilo gold"(not even close) and gold plated with the Gucci seal in a Gucci box. The Gucci people said it was around 1921 and although I could use the money ,should I wait till it's a 100 years old to sell it? Where would I sell it and would you like to see pics?
