Apparently this great grandfather worked for a Peerless auto dealership in Kansas City, the name is painted on the box along with a radiator badge from a Peerless.
The badge is worth about $125 as is but it will stay with the box. It still has the original keys for the lock!
The inscription on the inside of the box lid:" May 30 1918 Homeward bound"
A WWI veteran coming back from the war!
