QUESTION: these are the photos from the exterior and the interior of the safe. I am thanking you in advance. Nikos

Answer
I suspect that the nameplate is 21cm and not 23cm. Ebay 130927359809 should be less than 5 for this plate. Get the escutcheon from the same place for even less money. The top, rectangular plate was probably a retailer's name and will be difficult to replace.
