Customer Question

I have a safe similar to the one described by Glenda B. What can you fell me about.
JA: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.
Customer: It was in the basement if the house I bought in 2001 and is still there. I bought the house from R. L. Riley in Harrodsburg, KY.. There are 3 combination locks on the safe and I have the combinations. There is an inscription on the safe that says, "Grand Prize" , St Louis - 1904 . There is also the name Masonic Temple Co. Inc. - not sure why that is there
JA: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?
Customer: Could it be a prize at the World's Fair in St. Louis in 1904?. The safe is about 4 feet tall and very heavy.
