  7. Sorry AlLThingsOld , but the latches on the front and the corner hardware tell me your trunk is from around the late 1890's to early 1900's, and the nail is not hand forged it is a machine made cut na...

  9. Very nice jenny Lind, I don't believe the lock and lock plate are the original to the trunk, hard to tell for sure but looking at the picture of the trunk open, it looks to have a piece of tin coverin...

  18. Hey Jayday, your trunk is 100% american made, around early to mid 1880's, because of the latches on the front, patented around 1882- 1884 or so, recovering a trunk in leather can be done but it is ver...
  19. Also pictures of inside if possible, greendog.
