I found this foot locker at an estate sale this weekend, it has been gently cleaned and waxed. The dimensions are 33.25"L x 14.25"H x 15"W. When was it manufactured?
How would you set about replacing the missing barrel key?
Are these handles made of iron?
Has someone refinished it post-manufacture?
Thank you for your time,
Answer I would like to refer you to another contributor on allexperts.com named Marvin Miller. He is the absolute guy to go to about trunks.
Although there are several things I can tell you about your trunk, Mr. Miller is the guy!
