The item came with the attached envelope having as a return receipt the Hotel Frederick. The provenance was written by the owner of the hotel. It clearly was written and dated June 22nd 1965. It was passed down within several same family generations but most importantly is that it was documented as having been first owned by a Civil War Soldier that passed away in the war.
We have not been able to find any maker marks and have tested it for 14K gold, which it is. The stone could be a yellow diamond or Citrine. When you push in the back piece then the toothpick extends out.
2.5 inches when retracted and 3.5 inches with the toothpick extended. Our philosophy is the customer comes first.(It happens as we are human and do make mistakes). Create listings that get noticed! With Auctiva's 1,800+ Templates. Add a map to your own listings.
