When I saw this advertised on Facebook marketplace I knew I had to have it. I borrowed a truck and drove 2 hours to pick it up. Nicest trunk I've ever owned. The leather is too rotten-taking it all off. What fascinated me about this trunk is the workmanship involving the nails. First, they used washers behind many of the nailheads. Secondly, the designs are outlined in nails and the shapes look hand cut. Third, so many nails!
I read about the star lock on several of the posts on this site. Great source of information. Thanks. I've never seen anything like this trunk. Mostly I buy low end trunks and give them away to friends and relatives. I will not be giving this one away. Any thoughts?
