A 1949 Lane cedar chest in poor condition is worth $30 to $40.

It likely has veneers (thin sheets of expensive wood glued to less expensive substrate) that are peeling and chipping off and that makes it unrestorable.

In perfect condition, this would be worth $300.

Please do click the stars now for this one (bonuses are also welcome!), it is very important for me
to get good feedback for answering.
