Q: We found this old Diamond Dyes cabinet in the basement of an old drugstore in 1962. It looks like it’s made of cherry. It’s 28 1/2 inches high, 12 1/2 inches wide, and 10 inches deep. The compartments inside are eight across and seven rows deep. There are a few pamphlets, sample cards, and packages of dye in the compartments. Some of the pamphlets are stamped with the name of the pharmacist, who bought the store in 1905 and ran it until he died in the 1940s. What is the value of this cabinet?
