    Default What kind of Mosler safe is this

    I got this safe door from a friend. It is a mosler lock but I canít find anything about this safe or lock. Can you help me out?
    The first picture is the safe complete. I found this on the net. Not mine, I have only the door and hinge.

    Too bad the Slab Rock isn't your safe. Looked up Slab Rock and for a tiny burg with only 200 population, someone actually had some money to need a safe. Probably the coal mine office. Just a couple a hollers over from Big Stick, WV. There were a few notable residents. Bill Withers, whom most older folks know,. a sports figure and a lady jewel thief. Lady jewel thief funny stuff.

    Yes it is a Mosler, but no info on model. It is a Yale 029-1/2 lock. Likely late 1800-early 1900's.

    That's a lovely door Harrishawk, those little chests have a charm the bigger safes simply don't have. Everything about that looks perfect, lock and boltwork, even the crane hinge looks a lovely smooth and curvy casting.
    It's a shame you haven't got the rest of the safe- what happened to it?
