Continued from previous post. These are some close ups of the hardware and designs. This thing is littered with all sorts of markings, numbers, letters, engravings. I tried to shoot the ones which looked original to me so that we can begin to identify this. This does appear to be very old based on the craftsmanship and....well....the smell....enjoy!
left to right: pictures one and two show two different nails. I think hand wrought. The markings on them differ and the shape of all three drastically differ. Images 3 and 4 show what I think are the original markings on the wood going down the pieces left side.
