    Found this trunk at a thrift store yesterday & was hoping someone might be able to tell me something about it? Anything you can tell me would be much appreciated.

      Below links to Belber information pages 64,65 with company advertising 1917. Belber trunk ( as well as others trunk companies) had multiple contracts with the war department for trunks during time of war. Hope this helps,Enjoy!
