    Picked this one up last Sunday... not really sure of the age . I know it is painted!!! But the asking price of $15.00 & as I don't have one in my arsenal, this one will have to do for now. It certainly won't be a first choice to tackle that's for sure and will suffice at this time just for storage. Leather bound or binding under that black paint. Canvas covered with all original marked hardware and under lid makers label still intact. Measures in at 38 Long x 22 Deep x 24 Tall. Interesting Brass /copper/bronze? insert by the looks of it, on the lock face. It also has, which I don't see on a lot of the brass name plates seen, is a serial number? Not sure why some would have it and some don't. I wish it wasn't painted but it is what it is...lol

      Great find for the money. Tom I developed a deep respect for Crouch& Fitzgerald trunks . George Crouch in particular exemplified what American invention and enterprise really is. In an effort to share with others on CW here are some of the many patents that I have found.I hope they post they may not.

      Thanks for Love Drill and all this great info. I didn't realize that he was responsible for so many pieces that one sees on trunks all the time. Very impressive as you say, regarding his contribution to the trunk industry. Thanks for taking the time to show us his efforts ..I am sure all of us will certainly enjoy and benefit from your efforts!! Thanks again for sharing !!
