  1. Hey Thanks Brian, I was under the impression that the band and button format regardless of shape was still termed a Jenny Lind. But I see from looking a Legacy trunk page that this style as you said i...
  2. Thanks so much for the info Drill. I haven't heard from you in such a long time, I was honestly getting concern if you were ok or not. Nice to hear from you and I can now put those concerns behind me....
  3. Hey Thanks for the love trunkman!! You know,... I wish all trunks were simply made in a 24" and 22" format they are so much easier to move around and take up way less room..lol
  4. Thanks Sylvester22 ! I am sure it will clean up nicely, when I get to this one.
  5. Trunkman your to funny!! Yes a lot of the hardware was a surprise when viewed in person. This is a first for me regarding all hardware on this trunk, but for the brass trim which my Moynat trunk has....
  6. Thanks trunkman, This item has been listed for about a year and a half, I am not usually that part of the province to get it, but ended up close to it, so I made an honest effort to finally get my han...
  7. Brian, I'll trade you even for a MM wood slat dome top...I think you may have just gotten one in No? ...LOL Thanks Brian!! & Mike!!
  8. Yes trunkman, a rare one, this is the only one I have actually seen offered in Canada let alone in person. I was thrilled to see it for sure, along with my favorite hardware and condition!!! Right up...

  10. Wow!! Indeed..Great find...one that has still eluded my grasp!..lol I picked up last week a pure zinc trunk from the 1870's Brian that has the very same "trunk collection" litho in the lid. Not sure...
  11. Great trunk and case, nice color flavor!! I picked up a Horstmann & Sander-Hannover bentwood trunk last week also out of Germany. Do you have any info on this maker. Thanks if you do!
  12. How big is it? Without a makers label you will never know who made it. Date could be anywhere from 1880 - 1920's regardless of the 1872 patent date on the latches. If one was to pay fifty dollars for...
  13. Great stamped tin hardware! never seen that before.. But your date... I know you have based on the patent dates. However.... the visible patent with no number belongs to the cross slat patent which wa...
  14. Nice find Greendog !! And Wow!! All the hardware is different than one normally see's. I was going to say those pieces look like brass, then I read your description. I am sure you will do a fine job o...
  15. Thanks for the love bjb5859 ...I skipped you some how Sorry!!
  16. Thanks so much myoldkyhome!!
  17. I have many trunks with a number on the handle like this. The significance of this number from what I have learned is pretty much zero. Could be a customer identification mark from voyage, train etc.....

  27. Hi Brian, How thick is this copper plating? By that I mean, is it thicker and more durable then that of the regular tinned brass looking hardware you see on many many trunks or is it just as fragile &...
  28. Wow!! Excellent find!! There are a lot of Jenny Lind trunks out there. Speaking with Jim Cardoza in the past from HMS trunks, as he has been around, .... he states he looks for these trunks with sla...
  29. Hi Mike, Pondering this piece, one could, with a higher probability than just a steamer trunk, consider this to be a gun trunk. Can't prove it, but certainly food for thought looking at the interior m...
