    Hope nobody gets offended at my restoring, but with all that pine and oak it seemed right. Still would like to know who's initials in black print on that duck cloth and why the key is stamped # 8 along with all the sides? Hope I did it justice.

      You mean the latches have “8” imprint in them? Which initials are in it? (Not able to see either details in the current photos posted)
    2. Dltarnnr, 11 months ago
      The key has a # 8 engraved and inside after removing liner all sides had a # 8 written in pencil. On right side in black letters were initials H. M. W.

      Got it, likely the owner’s name initials (hmv). Maybe upload a photo of the key / places of the number here? colleagues here might have seen/come across something alike in their trunks journeys
