    Cool chest, but it will definitely exceed the airlines' 50 pound baggage limit. Good luck with your bidding!

    They sure don't make them like they used to. Wonder if that's the original key.

    @TPRC WOW! That is just gorgeous. Early 1800s?

    I don't recall the dates exactly, but from the website, it appears they are earlier than that and during the reign the Archduke Ferdinand II (1529-1595), son of the emperor, ruler of Tirol, which is more in line with my recollection. He had more than one but this was the only one in the Vienna Coin Cabinet. There are others at Ambras Castle.

    Have fun trying to remember what is in each drawer :)

    @jayPem ... Link in OP no longer works... got any pictures?? That second one is awesome, would definitely need to label the drawers. Cheers, RickO

    Works for me, @ricko. It's a video. Here's a screen shot.

    @lkeigwin ... Thanks for the picture Lance... Just checked... the link still does not work for me. Weird. Cheers, RickO
