    Hello. I am brand new to the APUG community. I found a vintage 1949 Graflex photo contest entry box. From what I understand, they did this every year for several decades. This wooden box has 3 dovetail drawers in back and 2 slots on top. Also featuring a 2 sides poster "photo" in front. The box itself is is peeling on the veneer, but still intact structurally. The photo is also faded on one side due to years of elemental exposure. The other side is near perfect displaying a photo by Jim Holbrook titled "BOXING". If anyone reading this might know any info on this item, or knows someone who may, any kind of feedback would be very useful. I would like to know how many of these things are still around, so i can compare value. Still trying to figure out how to post a pic on here. Thanks for reading
