Thank you

Answer
Hi Bob. There are no records any more for the Victor Safe Company.

A competent safe tech can open your safe without ruining it.

He may have access to some "try out" combinations in a reference manual. These are usually a long shot, but we try them first. Failing that, he may be able to manipulate the lock. As in dialing it open by touch and sight.

Lastly, he can drill a very small hole and use an endoscope to look inside and determine your combination.

What city and state are you in? I may know somebody that I can recommend.

Or you can try SAVTA.org or ALOA.org

Do not pay somebody hourly to open your safe. There are scammers out there that lowball the price up front and jack it up at the end.

Get a flat rate for the open, repair and trip charge.

In our area it would be $65 for the trip and  $250 to open and repair.

Hope this helps.
