Just before he died a man gave his neighbors a most unusual gift: a watch fob commemorating Francisco "Pancho" Villa's murderous raid on the border town of Columbus, New Mexico. The man says he was a boy when the raid happened in 1916. The new owners want to know more about this watch fob. Who made it? Did their friend indeed witness this infamous raid?
