Posted By: <b>Dave S</b><p>Anyone have any ideas on this? Appears to be an old watch fob, measures 1 3/8" diameter and center has a celluloid-like disc of Cobb. Back is heavily tarnished and there is TINY writing alond the perimeter...due to the tarnish, the only thing I can get with fair certainty is "PAT. APRIL"...can't make the year or company name (don't think it's ELASTICA as some I've seen)...any ideas?<img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/tmp/1178588990.JPG">
