    My husband went to a winter (3"of snow had fallen!) farm auction in eastern Kansas to buy a bulldozer & I told him to bring me home a surprise. It took him almost 2 hours to get home from the sale due to blinding snow. He didn't get the dozer, but said he DID get me a surprise and it was in the back of his truck. I brushed off 3"+ of snow and this wonderful old set of 1901 P.O. lock boxes were under all the snow! The old farmer had used them for his nuts & bolts. Thank goodness he turned the front of the boxes toward the shop wall and had preserved the glass! I love my hubby's surprises!

      He does have a good eye for unique things. I think he paid $70.

      Actually I haven't cleaned them yet , but they appear to have a basic combination (?). And the small round latch moves sideways. They very small box compartments. I'm just learning about them. Exciting to say the least
