    This is like the gold colored metal box you can turn the other direction to change the label to strong box. Only difference is it only Holds 25 items rather than 125. I have only seen a total of three of these. Although i know at one point you could place a strong box that only had room for 25 items in a house if you were a co-owner and it could not be picked up/moved.

    This one i have can be moved/picked up. Was wondering how rare this is and what its worth? Any info would be appreciated. Thanks

    Can't you turn it with a house deco tool and get the 0/125?

    I think if you turn it with the house tool it freezes it in place (well on the ground anyways). I don't think it will give 125 items in any case. The "metal box" from a house fall moving crate will say "strongbox" when turned.

    the 25 items ones are created by a bug. As I recall, those should still be illegal to own unless somethings changed since when you could "create them"

    Like 90% of all the metal box's/Stong box's were created with a bug involving house placement and the moving crate and i know this for a fact. They aren't illegal as far as i know because almost everyone has at least one.

    The 25 items ones i am not so sure about though. Been playing for a very long time and i never heard anything about them being made with a bug let alone illegal... I could be wrong though. I think that most people that have these are not even really aware because turned the other direction they do turn into a metal box with 0/125 items. Where as the other ones are 0/125 items either way they are turned.

    Really interested to hear if anyone knows the exact origin of these and if they are considered a valuable rare(As i think they are) or just junk.
     
  7. No one knows if these are illegal or not like Omnius seems to think they are?

    I buy and collect these on a regular basis. I pay up to 500k each. currently I have about 30 of them. I use them to put my newbie items on display so people can see them, but can't take them out. I've had newbie items locked down in them for several months and they don't decay. There's a slight trick to getting them to do that, something along the lines of what Sarsmi said, they will freeze when maneuvered in a specific way.

    As for their origin, I've been under the impression it was from long ago when co-owners had a box acceptable to them.
     
  9. Yeah, I am wondering if they are illegal. A few people seem to think they came from the same place you suggested.

    They used to be illegal, but I was under the impression that they were no longer illegal.

    I remember being able to make them with a bug back during UO:R and several guildies filling whole houses with them because they looked good(and they did look good).
