I believe the numbers your looking for are one of these-(7909622) inside back cover or(###) ###-####on the inside movement face.there is also a name(A.Luccolu ).there are numbers & letters below the name,but they are to fine for me to read even with a magnifying glass.I don't know anything about paperclips and I never have sent pictures before,but maybe I can if you help me do it using my I pad.

According to the serial number this is an A. Lincoln model made in 1909, 16 size and 21 Jewel railroad grade movement.

Your watch would sell for $200-300 at auction and insurance value is $500.

Thank you,
