I love the look of these older trunks. This one has great little latches with a pat. date of May 11th 1875. Bonus too that it has its original tray inside. I have not got around to re-doing the interior yet. I had a big hole where a knot popped out -- I have replaced it but am not satisfied with the plug so I will re-do that patch. The brass always stands out on these... I shined up the braass but left a little dull patina on it for effect. Had to move around the brass tacks as there were four missing from the top.
