I didn't look through this entire thread. Maybe this has been shown before.
Anyway, while I'm contemplating this, a fellow ExPo member posted a box for sale that piqued my interest. We met up, I checked it out and decided it was better than anything I could make, and cost less! Plus the personality is awesome. Based on some quick research, it appears to be a WWII vintage officers field desk. Swiss I think. The design and craftsmanship is incredible. Love the leather. Adds a nice dimension.
Took it out this past weekend for some car camping. It worked great!
Not sure if I should add a new thread, or just post here. Trying to identify this box I just picked up at a local Farmer's market for $40
I used to have an older footlocker that was my grandpa's, but that has gone missing for some time. I saw this today and had to have it. It does say GSI on the side, but looks handmade. Any help identifying it would be appreciated!!
