Thank you for your additional information, Heather!
Lost combinations need to be recovered from the safe's manufacturer, as they are the only ones who can provide this information to protect the security of your safe. I will give you a link, below, to access the owner's manual for the safe, for future reference, but for your convenience, here are the instructions re: lost combinations:
The lock on your safe has been set with a randomly selected combination at the time of manufacturing. As part of our continuing service, a record of your combination by serial
number is ***** on file. If you lose your combination, you can retrieve a copy for a $15.00 research fee (the fee may have changed), provided you have not changed the lock on your safe.
You must complete certain security and documentation requirements. Call Customer Service at(###) ###-#### ***** 0, or go to www.libertysafe.com to download a combination request form."
If your uncle had changed the combination from the original factory-set combination, they should be able to send you the procedure for resetting it, but only after you fill out the necessary forms to prove safe ownership.
It's a process, but it's set up to protect the customer.
The link below is to the site to download the form. It's more difficult to navigate the site than it should be, so I hope this helps:
I hope this information is helpful and you are able to get the combination to your uncle's safe without too much trouble.
