I put this away over 20 years ago.......I forgot I still had it!

It seems to be the NICEST one available at this time - have you seen the others?
(I know of one in "slightly better" condition that recently sold for about 5k!)

Most of these photos were taken in slightly muted sun, I used flash and window light indoors on a couple.There's a little edge wear, some faint/not too deep scratches, a few dings, and the handle has a little wear. In photo #6 you can see how lighting effects what you see. There's a scratch that's more visible at certain angle/different light. NOT major, but I want you to notice. It is superficial, and sometimes unnoticeable.

NO funky smells, and everything (latches, lid, storage door) line up and function properly.

LOOK AT THE PHOTOS (I have some LARGE versions I can email).
Any questions, let me know.
