Locksmithing/1940's safe

Question
dominion safe
dominion safe  
We purchased an older home a number of years ago.  There is an old Dominion Safe in the basement with a working combination lock.  It is in very good condition.  We have the original papers from the Dominion Safe Co., dated 1948.  What would it be worth, and do you know anyone who would be interested in purchasing it?

Answer
Like I have told so many people asking this very question, the value of these safes is fairly subjective and you would be best to post it somewhere like e-bay to get an idea of what a potential interested party would be willing to spend. A collector looking for this exact model might have more value for it than some cheapskate who is just trying to save a few bucks on something used.
