I just recently picked up this G M Wheeler token that I thought
was fairly cool. If anyone has this watch they can have this token for free.

This is a fairly late one
circa 1878-1879

Has anyone ever seen a matched watch and token? I'm sure there has to be someone out there who reunited the pair, or one that was kept with it's watch since purchase.
Not that I have seen here.

Less than a year ago, a watch and medal with matching serial numbers was listed on eBay. Unfortunately, the seller's asking price was unreasonably high, and I do not believe it sold.
