A recent post by the Trunkman inspired me to post this trunk I bought at a auction last year. I was quite fortunate and purchased it for it's opening bid. Like the Trunkmans, this is lined with newspaper from the 1830's. What is unique is that one article is about Davey Crockett. It also came with a 1950's newspaper article about the trunk and the Davey Crockett tie. I think that it was originaly covered in leather that has long ago disappeared. The one question I have about this is the initials on the top. The N is reversed? Does anyone have any ideal why this would be?
