Hello and welcome! My name is Doris.
I have been an antiques collector, dealer and appraiser for over 56 years.
I will be pleased to help you.

Please know that I cannot accept any requests for "live conversations" such as phone calls.
I give my best answers in writing when I have time to think about them.
Sometimes a "Chat box" will pop-up asking if you would like a live conversation. Please know it is not from me.

The two pictures look like two different safes?

Are they?

If so, which one do you want me to value?

Kind regards,

Doris

Thank you for the information.

Expert:  Doris replied 1 year ago.

Please note that this site is not one that buys what we assess.

My research indicates that both your safes are antique.

The white one dates late 19thC.

The red one dates ca1920s.

My research indicates that your white one has an estimated auction value of $1100-1350.

The red one has an estimated auction value of $700-900.

Both these estimated values depend on the sale location.

Your best avenue for sale would be either eBay or Craigslist.

You probably would realize more if you sell via Craigslist.

With eBay accept PayPal only.

With Craigslist, accept cash only.

I hope I have helped you.

If I can help you with further questions about this answer, please let me know before you rate me.

Im sorry I didn't answer ur earrings because I never got the name or the make year or anything solid pretty much anyone could throw out those numbers and those numbers would work for almost any safe of that age for 36 bucks I figured I would get a lot more closer to knowing a lot more about my safes who they were made for or what there purpose was mainly for the model yr something I tread it when showing a friend it said please respond before rating if not happy
Expert:  Doris replied 1 year ago.

If I read your question correctly, both safes have the name Diebold.

Is this incorrect?

I will be happy to provide other details you require if I know they both are Diebold.

Please know, I did not "just throw out numbers."

I did a thorough search for the same types of what I though were Diebold safes.

Please let me know if they are both Diebold safes?

My Best,

Doris
