The Family (Dandy) Jewels Part 4

I've written in the past here, here, and here, about the goodies I've inherited from various male members of my family. Here are a few more acquisitions.

One large silver Elgin pocket watch and one small gold Elgin pocket watch. 

The ornate detail of the covers are unreal. 

Three 4-H badges, the center one indicating "Boys And Girls Club Work" and the other two "Cornell University College Of Agriculture". I often see badges like these in the vintage photos I collect.

On the reverse on the left "1st Prize Judging Dairy Cattle Field Day 1926"; center "Awarded To (blank) By Eastern States Agricultural & Industrial Exposition Sept 20-26 1925 State College Of Agriculture And U.S. Dept. Of Agriculture Cooperating";  and blank on the right.

What looks to be a fob or charm of some sort and a Dick Tracy pocket knife (with magnifier and whistle) just for fun.
