That's a use specific container,ie;tent box. I use Army boxes especially signal corps ones to store things in. With a good gasket they are airtight and very handy. They don't sell for a whole lot of $ though. Here's my armory-

Unfortunately, what collectors look for is the contents of the foot locker, not the foot locker itself.
