Preparedness Notes for Monday — September 2, 2019

September 2, 1969 is the day that the first automatic teller machine (ATM) made its first public debut, dispensing cash to customers at Chemical Bank in Rockville Center, New York. While being as indispensable to most people as cell phones and e-mail, they have introduced a whole new set of issues. Consumers are faced with scams, skimmers, and robbers, and even fake ATMs have been discovered.

  1. In regards to gold watches, the watch cases are almost always gold or silver plated brass. A condition described as “brassing” is when the gold or nickel silver has been polished off the case so much that the “brass” is exposed. There are very few watches that have gold parts in them. The big boys like to play with the value of these watches as demand and prices swing wildly ( Due to their intrinsic value, investment grade watches are priced out of the market. ). A decent mechanical watch serves a good purpose, those after the 40’s usually have a non-magnetic balance spring.
