My father-in-law pulled this trunk out of attic 25 years ago during a remodel of an old house. New homeowner didn't want it, so he just gave it to him. I was recently looking for a trunk and my husband told me this one was just sitting in the barn and I could have it. The last photo shows the picture he sent me in a text, to see if I wanted it. You can barely tell there is a trunk under all that dirt. The more I clean it, the more I love it! All the hardware is there, and the bottom corners have wheels. The lock seems a little different than what I have seen on most trunks. I did notice the metal that bends down into the trunk on the inside (by the lid) is gold colored, but doesn't look painted. But the same metal on the outside, no gold. When I started to clean the metal brackets (end caps, etc.) some small shiny silver pieces remain. Anyone have info on the trunk?
