Need embossed tin for antique trunk



(-----) 2006

Q. I am restoring an antique trunk that is in very good condition except for one panel of embossed tin on the front. I would like to find sources for the tin and have not been very successful in my internet searches. Would appreciate any leads to sources!

Did you find the tin? If so, where?

Hi, folks. A picture would go a long way, as I don't understand quite what you are looking for.

You probably mean embossed sheet metal that is tin plated? Something like old "tin" ceiling tile?
