Default Help ID Cobb piece...

Posted By: Dave S

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?

Dave,

Take a piece of paper, lay it over the area you can't read(because it's worn down). Then use a pencil side ways and go over the area to see if any letters or #'s can be lifted out!

Might work!?
