Customer Question
a number on the front...
We have an antique Mosler safe, stamped Hamilton, Ohio with a number on the front 371508Then on the handle there is the information 2 hr. Class Fire B, #93738, then more info listed was Class T-20 Burglary.My question is: Is this a truly valuable antique? How much would you estimate its worth and how would we go about selling this? It is extremely heavy to say the least. Preserved well, and the writing on the front, Mosler Safe Company, Hamilton, Ohio is very clear and old fashioned. Joan

Mike, I will try and resend pictures today, June 15th. Also, any recommendations on where we can sell this safe? Thanks, jt
Antique Expert: ncsunburst, Antiques and Collectibles Researcher replied 1 year ago

Hi, The biggest problem is the weight. I would try either Craigeslist, or a local auction house with a good reputation that advertises so that the person who collects or needs a working safe but use a reserve on your safe so it doesn't sell for pennies on the dollar. As soon as I receive the photos I can give you a value if not give me a good description like size. Thanks Mike

If you need further assistance, please don't hesitate to ask.
