This is apparently an old military trunk I bought at a flea market. It's covered in a drab green covering of some sort,which is flaking off. It has leather handles . I love old trunks,but this one caught my eye because of the address on it,which is a very small town, which I am from. In the 3rd picture which I can't make out everything, it appears he was sending it to himself. I'm trying figure out an approximate age on it. The name on it appears interesting because the John C. Bates I have read about seems to have been very high up in the military. Anyone with any input? I would appreciate any info. or guesses about how old this might be or any other interesting tidbits. Thanks.
