    Here's my Union Supreme trunk that was manufactured in Virginia by the Union Supreme Trunk and Bag Company. It was a yard sale find for $20.
    I believe this is what you'd call a vulcanized fiber trunk (could be wrong about that though). It was in rough condition on the outside, but the interior was nearly 100% complete (with the exception of the missing top tray covers) and still has most of it's original lining. It has two trays inside.

    All I did to this one was clean it, paint it and replace the handles. I did put a couple of coats of satin polyurethane over the whole trunk to help protect the finish and hardware. I happened to have a spare lock lying around the shop, so I went ahead and replaced the lock as well.

    It's pretty large and one of my sons keeps his air soft guns and equipment in this one.

    For a $20 trunk, it's not too bad!

    Thanks for looking!!
    Scott

      Thanks PatSea! I would have painted it back blue, but I just happened to have a can of this color lying around and was itching to get rid of it. Thanks for love and the kind comment!!

      Thanks Cindy!! It took about 4 hours of total time, spread out over a couple of days, on this one. This was an easy one to do.
