I'm sorry, I just couldn't resist.  I checked the e-mail this morning and
had the usual batch of about 70 e-mails or so, including this blatant
Category 2 example:

"HAVE A TRUNK WE JUST AQUIRED IT IS A FLAT TOP IT WAS MADE BY NATIONAL
TRUNK FACTORY WAS MADE  6/24/13  NO. 4561  KEY 107 ON TOP  NAME LABLE IS
DOUGLAS BY NATIONAL FACTORY NEED WORK DONE . INSIDE STILL HAS THE TRAY
INSIDE. HOW DO I FIND OUT MUCH IT IS WORTH AND WHAT IT WOULD COST TO
REFINISH IT NEED NEW HANDLES."

Luckily we have every trunk manufacturer's original sales records* and key
blanks* so we can be of some help* to this person.  I just wanted you to
see what I meant in that last letter, I really wasn't kidding around.
Much.

Thanks;
