    Default Lucky watches, latest sh**e on eBay

    For your perusal... Two lucky watches on eBay. The first one currently has bids of 96. The last three pictures show one that actually sold for an astonishing 205 just a few days ago. I bet they cost no more than s fiver to cobble together. An old pocket watch, a spent bullet, drill a hole and push through. last year it was 'lucky pennies' which seemed to be in fashion. Strange how the bullets all seem to hit at a perfect angle! How strange that both show the same time and have the bullet strike in the same place!

    You may find this watch of interest it has direct providence to a Canadian Vet Lieutenant Charles Jeffs On October 9, 1944, at the Shceldt, Holland, Lieutenant Jeffs and fellow soldiers were hit with mortar fire. The watch in Jeffs' battle gear took quite a hit and saved his life. He spent months recuperating from the multiple wounds he received that day.

    I agree Harry they look completely different I am as well amazed that the bullets have not fragmented and have kept there shape so well they must have been traveling quite slow
