Notes Montana Territory Trunk - constructed of solid wood - each side is constructed with 3 wooden panels, all of which are approximately the same width (ranging between 8-9 inches). The front and back sides are the same length as well as the two short sides. The inside of the lid - front two corners - have been reinforced with tin. There is a thin piece of wood which has been placed inside the crate at each corner for reinforcement. Additionally a piece of wood has been placed down the center of each side - possibly for reinforcement for the rope handles. A single thin board has been placed across the bottom also for reinforcement. There are 2 metal straps, the third metal strap in the center is almost completely gone, up the front with hooks at the top. On one side of the lid is the hook to lock into the side hook - the other is missing. Printed across the face is the following "Bremen = Helena City / Montana = / Territory / U. S. Amerika". The attached label, on the proper right reads "D. Eider / Zwischendeck / No. 31". The top of the lid is painted red with black lettering - the lettering cannot be deciphered.
