  12. Could be late 1870's ,I have a couple of zinc trunks and they look quite similar only beat up pretty good. This one is not at all and I think that's what is making hard to tell. Nice trunk Maria775!!!
  13. Greendog,its really hard to tell but It looks like possibly a Zinc covering because of the color and smoothness.

  36. Thanks ,Drill and Trunkman for your kind words. Now its on to the next one.
  37. gundy03130 Typically the smell comes from the cloth or paper that lines the trunk.Get rid of that and the trunk will smell better or you can try activated charcoal,this will however take a few weeks...
