Bought this at a garage sale today... Turns out its a "saddle trunk" Help please.

Hi everyone.
I know NOTHING about horses or supplies. I was doing my weekly garage saleing and came across this item. It looked interesting so I bought it for a few bucks. I was wondering if anyone can tell me what exactly it is, what it's for, and what it's worth in used condition.

I found a little information on the website of the company but it's japanese to me since I do not know any horse terms.

It is a little rusty and dirty but I should be able to get it cleaned up before I put it on Ebay. I am just looking for a starting place price wise since I have no clue what something like this would sell for.

Thanks so much for your help.

You might be able to look it up in www.dover.com their catalog is nice.
You could google tack trunk and see if you can find a price there.
If you were closer I might be interested.
Might want to sell it in craigs list as hipping will be a fortune if you sell it on ebay.
good luck

Thank you!, I will take pictures of it tomorrow. It is in my garage and there isn't a light in there so I will need to wait until the sun is up.

I'm so glad I bought it, I had no clue what it was, or what it was worth but something made me take it!

Thanks

OK, Good news and BAD news. The good news is, I was able to get it cleaned up and take pictures, The bad news is, I took it to a "do it yourself" carwash to clean it, and I dropped it while taking it out of the truck (DOH!!!).... This basically MINT Saddle trunk is now, damaged. :(.... I have posted pics of the damage it caused, It now has a small gap when you close it and a small piece of plastic broke off. It is still functional and might be able to be repaired, I am just not a handy person. Totally bummed about this. Hopefully it is still worth something. I was planning on asking around $300 but now, I will be taking offers, I live in the L.A. area if anyone is interested.

I should also note, the discoloration is because it is still wet from the car wash.
Also, the dry erase board is warped but can easily be replaced or maybe even flattened out and screwed back down. (see last pic)

Thanks Guys!
