When I started to become interested in collecting old trunks and suitcases this is the first one I came across. It was at a yard sale for $35 and it was at the end of the day. At some point during the sale someone had closed and locked the trunk and nobody had the key to open it again! So they said I could have it for $5.
I've since done a bit of online research on how to pick these sorts of locks but I haven't had a go at it yet. Does anybody know an easy way that doesn't include knocking out the hinge pin?
Nothing rattles around inside, and it's not heavy enough to contain a dead body, but what's inside - including the condition - is still a tantalizing mystery!
