at last, after years of digging holes I finally found my first watch fob.....WHH -William Hair Haseler, lion and anchor - Birmingham hallmark, the date letter might be a gothic g for 1906...

I gave it 5 minutes electrolysis using a 9v battery in a baking powder solution,.... the reek of cotton eggs! but it helped clean it

Cracking find, that :thumbsup:

Is it the date letter you're looking for info on, FM? If so, a closeup would be handy for thems like me who struggle even with the largest print :D :thumbsup:

Lovely find indeed...I like the wear on the suspension ring as you can tell it has been worn and used a lot before it was lost; to me that makes it a very "personal" item.....
