    Hey guys, just curious if anyone can help me identify this trunk. It's been sitting at the family farm in the attic of a barn for who knows how long, it's certainly seen better days. I don't see any markings aside from the Eagle Lock Co. on the actual latch. There's a lithograph(?) in the inside that's pretty much gone. I'm just looking to have a little more info to go along with this, The ww1 tunic, helmet, and gas mask(satchel) belonged to my 2nd great uncle and that was found inside.
    Also, I'd like to keep this thing around for another hundred+ years for my son to pass on as well. What would you recommend for preserving it? Thank you for any info or directions you can send me in!
    Thanks,
    Dan.
