I couldn't find an area to post an introduction, so here it is along with a question. I'm David from Daytona Beach Florida and I collect wrist and pocket watches (short and sweet). So the question. I recently picked up receipts, over 20, from the 1880 and 90s. They all have the same customers name. I'm fairly certain this person worked for the Old Colony Railroad. A lot of of receipts have the serial number to the watch that was sold, so being curious I looked them up on the pocket watch database. A lot of it matches up with the receipts, but a few others don't. I just looked up a waltham and the database shows it as being a model 35, while the receipt says it's a model 40. There was a hampden I recall where the receipt was written a few years before the database says it was manufactured. Little things like this. I'm assuming the receipts from that time period are probably correct, but at the end of the day, who knows. Is there anybody that documents these things? Does anybody actually care? I have these and just want to make sure I don't keep them from the world when they can be useful.
