ww2 1945 army footlocker. What do collectors look for??

Hello,and thanks for your time! I dont know much about these or what collectors look for aside from the condition. Mine has stenciled or sprayed? information on the top? I can read some of it. has owners name, charleston, washington ect...
Inspection tag is still on, partial sticker on side, says special troops and owners name.
Probably gonna sell locally, but Id like to know what Im selling. Thanks

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.
