      Wow! Aligator with double locks. That must be the jackpot. The end caps for the handles appear to be stamped metal which would date it after 1890, I believe. Can't wait to hear from others on this site. I do not think there is another aligator covered trunk here.

      Sorry I have just realsied it isnt aligator, its aligator/croc embossed metal of some sort. Opps oh and its got faded CC initials on either the side, Christopher Columbus maybe? ha ha

      Check out trunk # 38. It is another faux gator/crock. You have company.

      I have a very similar trunk, with the exact lock set. I do not have a key. Do you? If so would share a pic so I can know what I am looking for. Any writing on the key (if you have one) or on the lock would help me in my search.

      Hi Rekidderjr, really sorry for the very late reply the email ended up in spam, I have taken a picture of the key, if you let me have an email address I send it direct from my phone.
