I am still mourning the loss of my great great grandfather's Elgin lever set pocket watch. A large heavy watch in a sylized shell hunting case. Purchased in Chicago after returning from silver mining in the west in 1884. It is engraved M. Hunt and 1884 on the front. It was stolen by my cleaning lady's daughter who came to "help" one day. I suspect it was sold for drug money as the heroin epidemic is rampant here. I don't expect to see it again but one never knows.
