The second trunk that I found years ago comes with this story. When I saw it on the curb it was full of rags and I do not like dumping stuff on the curb so I took the trunk full of garbage home. Underneath that rags was a completely disgusting molded over ladies purse. Curious me wanted to see what was in the purse before I threw it out so with rubber gloves and a tweezer I pulled the rotted purse apart and found this inside. Along with it was a newspaper from New York dated 1919 and letters from Germany and an old bottle of champagne still corked. It is marked "silver gold" which means a low grade of metal neither silver or gold. Shines up beautifully. You just never know what you might find if you are willing to go a little further...
PS. What would this really be called?
