    I believe it's a Gerstner but not sure

    Is this an old Gerstner? Bought it at an auction and when I got it home it looks to be a Grestner sticker on the bottom drawer although I never knew them to use stickers. The sides of the drawers seem to be an OD green so military maybe? The leather seems good no rips or anything but is dry. Whats the best stuff to use to clean and soften it?

    If you follow my restoration, I cleaned the case and treated the leatherette by coating it with Kiwi black leather dye and then Kiwi black liquid polish. That process evens out the color and brings back a luster to it. Mine has metal parts boxes in the drawers.

    I almost passed on this on at auction but for 1.00 I didn't figure I could go too wrong. Great info here. Thanks for all the replies.
