First, thanks for another history lesson. Second, where's the crown located at? Third, now I want one :lol: Fourth, date wise, late 50s?

Carl,

The Caribbean is on my list. I've seen several other "Elgin" solids as well, but none of them have those lugs! Sometimes they go under the radar as one thinks that only the Lord Elgin line were made in solid 14k.

It's on the back, will take a shot for you.

Sold between 1961 - 1964.

Good luck. One day I'll let the 40 I have go.....
