Answer
Hello Adam,
I have a little information about Cutter & Cutter, but I would really need to see a couple pictures of your trunk to help with information about the age, etc.  The registration listings are not available so unfortunately that won't really help. A picture of the label would also be helpful to see. Thanks, Marvin
