I have a cedar chest from 1969 that was damaged by Mayflower Movers during a recent move. I am making a claim and trying to determine current value of my chest.

For comparison I checked Etsy and found a red cedar chest for $199.00 -age not given. A chest from the mid 1900's is not very old so probable low value overall, not considering physical condition.

I am trying to find out when the Murphy #19 cedar chest was made.
I have a Murphy cedar chest. It says Murphy 4017 on the back. Is there anywhere I can look up models to find out more information on what it's worth and what exact year it was made. Although I believe mine was made between 1985-1989, because I was a small child when it was purchased for me. I was there when it was picked out and purchased for me. It's at least 25 years old. Any info on this particular model?

I have a Murphy cedar chest that says Murphy 18 on the back. It was in pieces when I found it beside the road. My grandfather was a master carpenter so he was able to put it back together and it looks like it just came off of the show room floor now. My question is how can I tell how old it is?
