Default Identifiying a Choke

I found a old choke and what to know what its value is. Is there a way I could do this with a multimeter?

Yes, you also need a sine wave signal generator and a series resistor.

Yeah, picture would be ok.

The sine wave generator can be the low voltage secondary of a power transformer, but it will only measure the inductance at 50 or 60 Hz (depending on where you live).
