I’m sorry, I just couldn’t resist. I checked the e-mail this morning
had the usual batch of about 70 e-mails or so, including this blatant
Category 2 example:
“HAVE A TRUNK WE JUST AQUIRED IT IS A FLAT TOP IT WAS MADE BY NATIONAL
TRUNK FACTORY WAS MADE 6/24/13 NO. 4561 KEY 107 ON
TOP NAME LABLE IS
DOUGLAS BY NATIONAL FACTORY NEED WORK DONE . INSIDE STILL HAS THE TRAY
INSIDE. HOW DO I FIND OUT MUCH IT IS WORTH AND WHAT IT WOULD COST TO
REFINISH IT NEED NEW HANDLES.”
Luckily we have every trunk manufacturer’s original sales records* and
blanks* so we can be of some help* to this person. I just wanted
see what I meant in that last letter, I really wasn’t kidding around.
