My dad passed away in November and we are trying to value the items he owned and collected.  Pictured is what I think he deemed as a coal wagon. I figured I’d ask to see if any could identify.  It stands 36 inches in height and is 2 ft 9 inches by 3 ft 7 inches.  As pictures show it has its share of rust.

Thanks in advance for your reply.

Does it have a pivit to be able to dump out it's contents ?  Looks in fairly rough condition.  Only real value would be if you could document it's use during the Belchers Gultch?   gold rush or a similar notable location or usage.

Yes it is in rough condition.... and I don't think it dumps from the side.  I know it rolls and it sits on 3 wheels.  We are in southeast Louisiana so I tend to think he picked it up around here.... but since he is gone, I have no clue.  Thank you so much for your thoughts.
