Is this vintage 1950's suitcase worth anything?

This was handed down from a family member. It still works, the latches open and close easily, though it's well traveled and has some scratches and stains. I can't find a company label, though I'm pretty sure it's from the 1950's and possibly the 40's. Any insight is appreciated!

appears more 1950-60. No value to speak of, but good for storage.

Thank you! I just found a similar Samsonite piece from the 50's...would you say that's probably not worth much either?
