My wife and I recently picked up this chest at a local yard sale. We have always wanted one. We were trying to figure out the make of the chest and did a lot of research online but we are new to this type of furniture and not sure how to identify it. Only identifying marks we can find are patent dates on hinges on the back of trunk. We know the double locking latches are missing, key hole and rest of lock are there. Two wheels off bottom and the handles. Has three patent dates: Pat'd Jan. 1, 1884
7 July 29, 1884
77 Jan. 6, 1885
Any help would be appreciated, thanks Jason and Mara.
