i just brought this safe from a friend just wonering about its history and value..
any help would be apreciated thank you

Answer
Around 1900 it is filled with sawdust and alum from a second tier producer (one of very many in the midlands at that time).
I am afraid that it has neither collectable value nor does it have an insurance rating soi they sell for under 100 in auction
