Need Info/Value on 1880s Humpback Trunk

Need Info/Value on 1880s Humpback Trunk appraisal

The trunk is in fairly good shape considering what is thought to be its age (1880s?).  Dimensions are 34" x 22" x 19 1/3".  No mold that I can see.  Slight rusting to the metal parts and normal wear to wood.  Only the one strap pictured is intact, the other two are broken.  The hardware on top says "Pat Mar 1880" which is the patent date from the research I've done.  The lock says Pat Jul 972 which is apparently the patent date of the lock as July 9, 1872.  I don't know much else about this as I received it from a friend that didn't want it.  Any info and value would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

     We own a trunk that is exaclly like yours. We are also trying to find information about where it comes from. The trunk was given to my mothers great grandma by her husband, when they were going to get married. The trunk was purchased in Benson, AZ and then taken from there to Sonora, Mex. If you have any more information of the trunk we would be pleased if you could give us that information. We will give you more information that we find to you, thank you.
