FWIW, based on the serial number, the door would date to late 1916.
Oh yes! Play by play action please. Video if you have it but pictures will do.
Congrat's David! I would be interested in how it played out.
I have have a vault door In a building I purchased. Please let me know if anybody is interested
Over here, Joli made fire safes in what I am guessing was the 1950's and 1960's which used a rim cylinder lock but with a longer key blade than a YA1E. That safe is older but if it is a fire safe...
Thanks to David Hovey for getting the safe open for us!
Doug I'm afraid I'm no use whatsoever on this, although I am intrigued by the lock and have to say I'm flattered that you've asked :(nod):
Like you, I've also spent way too long looking, in fact...
Thanks again to Nathan for providing blanks...the lock is with a friend who is going to try making a key!
