    I was hoping to get there before the sun went down, but I had to go clean up after another "professional" destroyed a gun safe he was called out on for a warranty repair. Nothing beats working in the dark around this dangerous stuff, but we got it loaded, secured, and back to the shop. I was able to get a couple of quick photos with my phone the following day in the light. It's around 100 years old, and likely 8,000 pounds plus or minus.

    Cool pics! Was that from some old bank? And is the actual safe that round section behind the door?

    That would be cool in the right house

    This door has a lot of history as it's around 100 years old. Most recently it was seized from a gentleman who is doing some prison time for fraud.

    This is just the door. The round safe behind it is a cannonball safe. It could go into a house, but it wouldn't be a run of the mill house. This door is set up for 14-15" walls.
