Locksmithing/Mosler Safe


I am interested in purchasing a used Mosler safe and am hoping to find out the quality and security level of the safe Im looking at. The model is Y2459 it also reads UB1  U4  5MA Group A4.  Any help would be appreciated.

It sounds like it might be a fire rated safe from the 50s/60s.

The SMNA - Safe Manufacturers' National Association is no longer around.

Any chance you could post a pic? A full outside one would be good.

Mosler went out of biz around 10 years ago, but most of their safes can still be serviced.
