The old black trunk washed up along a nearby park beach, though nothing of note was found inside it, park officials said.

According to park officials, the box itself was a vintage 1930s steamer trunk, belonging to a brand called “Neverbreak Trunks.”

No information was provided on how the trunk washed ashore, though the find comes weeks after Hurricane Nicole washed up several other items during its trek through Florida, including an old Spanish coin and human remains.
