I purchased this trunk at an estate sale yesterday in CT. Don't know much about it. It's a medium sized trunk with wood inside. Has decorative photo inside lid. Appears to be alligator embossed tin. Latch mechanisms read "Pat JUL 9 72". I would like to restore this trunk but there is some rust and looks like a travel card with some sort of writing was riveted to side of the trunk. Any feedback on identificaton, type, manufacturer, age would be so appreciated. Also seeking tips on restoration. Thanks in advance.
