The Valuables Box

A mere sixty years ago it was still popular to safeguard insurance policies and other valuble papers in a "valuables box." These boxes were fire-proof, might have contained a combination, key or similar lock, and often were just large enough to accommodate a small stack of tri-folded documents. "Back in the day," the firm offered these boxes as gifts for clients' use, in which to store their policies and other important papers.  In today's semi-paperless world, such boxes are relics but they make great collectibles if you can still get your hands on one.
