Hi. I have a an old flying A metal over wood suitcase-like
trunk which also has 76's in orange, and 4 white winged flying red A's on the front, along with RENO and Gardnerville. Also added were the owner's initials J.L.K. in orange stenciled letters. It is a military green color, nicely made. Was this a salesman rep case, or a company rep traveling case do you suppose? It is old, made in the 30's, a guess. Weighs 20 pounds and is 30" long, 12" wide, and 16" tall. Any way to find out how early Flying A was in business, and did it merge with "76" somewhere along the way, or were those 2 always affiliated? Thanks.
