Please review all pictures for overall condition and size, as this helps form the overall condition/description of the item. Wear is consistent with age and use.This is another piece from the Girlfriend's Great Grandfather's collection we found while clearing her Grandparents attic. Her Great Grandfather was a courier in Europe during WW1, not sure if this is a piece of gear issued to him that he carried/used or just had it and his son ended up hanging on to it all these years. Very cool and rare find. It does not have a battery, item is untested and we are unsure what it needs to get working. It had some parts inside when we opened it up, looks like parts to the battery when installed. All the switches/levers seems to function very well.
Most stuff looks in good shape, has the morse/Telegraph machine and even what looks like the original screw driver under the lid. Lid opens/ closes very well and the button works well. Leather is in great shape for its age and handle is strong. This is a big heavy piece of gear 10.25" tall X 9" wide X 5 deep and weighs 20 pounds 11 ounces.Very sturdy and well made piece of gear. Please, review and message us with any questions or if you need additional photos of any areas. We'll be more than happy to work with you so you are informed of and comfortable with the condition of this item.
