I did not find any patent dates on the trunk and based on 50 plus years of restoring trunk I would date this trunk to the 1870's to 1880's which makes this neat old humpback as much as 141 years old - a true antique.
This trunk was structurally sound when the restoration started and the metal bottom is solid, has multiple coats of clear, 2 original slats, 4 original metal whee and the trunk rolls easily.
