Hi all, I’m new to this site. I’ve had this trunk for 40+ years and I’m trying to figure out the value of it. I know I don’t want to give it away, but I’m trying to figure out an approximate value on it. All of the Louis Vuitton sites I’ve been on, will only help you date the item if it’s newer than 1980. And I don’t believe this qualifies. Anyone have any ideas for me?

The serial # on your trunk is 071213.

"How do you date a Louis Vuitton trunk?"
"Each trunk has its own identification number . Thanks to Louis Vuitton archive records, the serial number is a simple way to find out the year and month of manufacture and sale of your trunk."
 

Appears to be made by his son George. They have several listed on e-bay and can be worth several thousand.
Here is an article about the trunks.
