Today I got to fit the latch to my ex-army wooden box. I could not buy anything I thought looked period correct, so I made my own. Now all I need is a small brass old time padlock.

Thanks for the link G. R. I didn't like the prices until I looked on ebay Australia. A US purchase is now much more likely, especially if I can score a Corbin one. It can go on my roadster with the Corbin speedometer, and the present one fitted to the new/old box.

This is the third one of these boxes I have laid eyes on. I should have bought one of them at the asking price of $25. The other was a prop on a WW1 TV production.
