After buying this beat-up trunk at a yard sale, I noticed the tags and stickers that were on it, and that it had a shipment sticker from the Railway Express Agency (1920-1970). The shipment date looks like it says 1944 and the declared value was $1100. The tag that was on the side leather strap says the name L.M. Hughes. Also, the trunk has the number 14 on it and the lock says U.S.A Excelsior Stamford Conn. 5988.
I would like to find out more information about this trunk and how old it is or maybe even who it belonged to. Thanks.
