MY 'NEW' OLD BUICK WATCHFOB

Recommended Posts

There are supposed to be two separate photos in this posting.  Trying to get this system to 'upload', 'download', or whatever they wanna call it, photos into the body of the message is like trying to pee up that proverbial rope.  This new program is about 300 light years behind what we had before.

Yes,  I have one.  It has some writing on the back that is engraved.  Probably the manufacture.  Too small for me to read.

There are two 'separate' photos in my post alright.  What I wanted to say and it didn't come out that way was there was supposed to be two 'different' photos in the post.  I'm going to try it again this morning and see if that helps any.

I like the patina on yours... 

 

My parents gave me this one with my grandfather's watch, knife, & chain.  My Father will be 94 on Christmas day (tomorrow).

Mark, could you show us the back side of the fob please?  As Larry said, that is very nice indeed.  And do this for all of us guys out there - spend as much time with your Dad as you can.  You will lose him all too soon someday.  Hope you had a Merry Christmas.

Terry,

    I do spend time with my father every week.  We took him out to see the Christmas lights a couple of evenings before Christmas and he spent his birthday/Christmas with us and our grandchildren. 

 

Here's your photo with the original gold chain on the right:
