Rabbit Rescues - Junk in da trunk

Rabbit here...with our most recent rescue. Found only a few blocks from our warren, this 1880s steamer trunk was bound for the rubbish pile (aka - the landfill). An emergency stop and 30 seconds of rabbits rushing around the brush and viola...it's ours! Nice hardware, cast iron rollers and a very intact inside lining were some of its virtues. The label and most of the outer leather strap are still there and as you can see it came with a pirates treasure inside!
Rabbits rate this a 14 carrot find.
