lock/key issue with 1976 450sl

We have lost the "good" key of my wife's 1976 450sl, all we have is the "valet" key, which works on the doors and the ignition but not on the trunk or the glove box.
Is there a way for us to open the trunk without the key, and how?
Otherwise, is this a job (and having a new key redone) any locksmith working on cars can do, or is this a job only a dealer can do?
Thanks!

Order a key using the VIN number. As long as the locks in question are original you will be ok.I ordered one not long ago and it was only about £12 here,although I did have to provide every ID except D.N.A ! It only took a few days to arrive.
