There is no key, though these are pretty standard, should you decide to use the lock. The United States Air Force actually split from the Army as its own entity in 1947. ARMY: AIR FORCE proves that it was at least being used prior to that time, though the other tag is appears to be dated 1954. So this trunk was in use for soldiers for at least seven years or more.
This is an amazing historical piece that could be used as a conversation piece, a museum entry, or an awesome addition to your man cave! The could be used as a bench, table, or simply continue being a great place for storage at the foot of a bed!
The measurements of the outside of the trunk. 17 x 31 an 13 tall. Add another 1 total from front to back to include front locks and back hinges. Add another 2.5 total from end to end to account for the 1.25 protrusion of each handle.
With tray set inside (it sits on two rails 2 down from the top), the bottom has about a 7 capacity. Again, please send any questions! The item "RARE WWII Era U. Army Air Force Footlocker Trunk -Orig.
