    Trying to verify authenticity

    Hi! Iím trying to buy a Christmas present for my husband, but I want to make sure Iím not getting fooled because I donít know how to identify a real tool chest from a harbor freight knock off. Can someone help me and help me with an approximate worth if you think it is ďrealĒ? Thank you!

    Well, given this thread is over a month old, I don't feel too bad hijacking it. I saw this on CL locally, and am picking it up tomorrow. I read on the Gerstner site for the three things to look for (stamp on latches, name plate, stamping on bottom of chest). Any feedback on authenticity is appreciated.

    Sure looks like a Gerstner Style #O41A, O41B or O41C, depending on its dimensions......Ted
