    Just bought this 18" wide on ebay

    would love to know more about it. Would also like a ballpark resale value. I think I did pretty well paying what I paid, about 180.00 shipped. Thanks.

    Based on your chest's characteristics; the foil label, lid restraint hinges, and lock style, I would hazard a guess that it is an O41B made in the 1943 to 1948 time period. All that information can be garnered from Ted's excellent web site at: https://sites.google.com/site/thegui...chinistchests/

    It's not a precise art. Dating is always tricky. Valuing these chests is even trickier. A chest is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it. I have restored and sold scores of these boxes and you never know who will fall in love with what.

    Welcome to the forum and to the obsession!

    Hi Terry,

    Thanks so much for the quick answer. That looks about it. although as it is 18 inches, I would say it is the 041A.

    I am really happy with this chest. I use it to store modelling tools and supplies on my workbench.
