Antique Vanderman 1897 Gold Bullion Strongbox or Trunk or Strong Box with Trays

Up for auction is a great piece of railroad history.  Brass tag reads M'F'G' by the VANDERMAN Manufacturing Co.  Willimantic Conn Pat. July 13, 1897.  Wood bumpers are rivited on.  Bot handles are intact.  Everything seems to be there.  There are 2 trays that set in the truck that seem to be original.  Most other trucks seem to be missing them.  There are bumps, knicks, and some paint spatter on the truck.  Trunk is solid and 100% functional.  The lock and most of the chain is missing.  Inside the box there is some rust at the bottom, but by no mean eaten through.  The truck seems to be in better shape than most of the other ones currently for sale on Ebay.

The trunk weighs 94 lbs and measures 32 by 17.25 by 19. 

Local pickup is preferred, but if you make the arrangments I can crate the chest for $40 and drop it off at any local freight terminal.
