Locksmithing/Lost Diebold safe numbers



The owner of the house I'm about to move to, is leaving me Diebold safe box (not sure what serial number yet). Only downside of this, is that owner remembers only code 2 numbers. According to owner, his son locked the safe and they never had opened it since then.
How can I get this safe unlocked, so I could use it for my purposes?

Thanks in advance for sharing information/suggestions/recommendations.

MOST Diebold safes have a 3 number combination.

If you know two of the three, you only need to dial 100 combinations at the most.

Can you post a pic of the whole safe and a close up showing the dial and handle?

Serial numbers aren't much help because most safe combinations are changed throughout the life of the safe.

I can probably ID the safe from the pictures and tell you how to dial the combination.
