The Brass Treasure Chest is an attractive, well-made puzzle. It looks great on my desk at work and has challenged a few of my colleagues.
This was the first puzzle I bought, and it sparked my interest in this hobby. I played around with the box and thought I had it figured out in 10 minutes, but no, I had only solved the first of three steps required to open the box. Through sheer luck, I managed to have the box open within 30 minutes.
The rest of the evening, and days that followed, I tinkered with the box, trying to figure out the moves that causes the secret mechanism to engage and disengage. I managed to understand the first and third steps to the solution, but the second "move" was the tricky one.
I downloaded the solution and it was made clear how to consistently solve this puzzle. I loaned it to a buddy and he also managed to open it in an evening.
I think a rating of 10 is a little high, but due to the workings of the box being concealed from view, it is a demanding little puzzle.

Looks nice but...
- instructions were confusing
- never got it fully open, even with the instructions, wasn't sure if it was stuck or it was just me.

A beautifully made little box that's a joy to open and close. Very well made. However, I found that the sequence of steps required to open it is such that I don't think I'd ever have coincidentally worked it out on my own. I worked at it for about a month before finally looking at the solution. I'd never have hit upon it, and you can't figure it out by examination. But maybe others have felt differently. Nevertheless, I recommend it!

Still haven't quite gotten it open. The instructions were a bit confusing, too.
