This bad boy is ancient! I just want to know more about it... I can't find the Manufacture on it anywhere and it is "sargents combination style" LOCKED open. There is another smaller safe inside I don't have the key for that either. My mom and I thought maybe from the Jesse James era since we only live about 20 minutes from Northfield where he robbed the Vermillion bank. I think it has a neat story, even if I did make it up. But I would like to know more about it, anything at all. In comparision to those on the internet McKennas Safe co. and Silas C. Herring & Co. it looks to be about 1800's, and about a thousand pounds ( give or take a few, I can't move it!). So here I am left sitting wondering if its really even cool at all or if it's just an old hunk or cast iron(?) Please help! Thanks alot, I am excited to hear from someone. Kristina & Jerod Waltman.
