It was just a gold chain that was used to hold a watch years ago from what I was told. It looked like gold but it was not marked anywhere that I could see. I brought it to DA Buyers for an appraisal and to possibly sell it. They offered me 1750.00 for it. Not a hard decision to make. I got it for free from my house when I was a kid and used to play with it. Now I can buy as much better toy or something.
