American Cherry Ballot Box

American Cherry Ballot Box

A nice dovetailed cherry box with a carefully designed interior latch under the slot in the top.  There is also an applied strip on the inside around the edge to keep anyone from slipping in extra ballots. Four tiny tacks remain on the lid that must have secured a paper label.
