Well someone should have checked
Let's not beat the guy up over something so ephemeral and transitory.
precisely what i was thinking too
I think checking the safe just in case would be rather low on the priority list. Just sayin....
True. They can be. If it's something you are planning to keep, do what you want with your own stuff. You might get some purists who scream about it, but at the end of the day, its your stuff.
However, despite DaveBullas advice (which, if you don't want to sell them, I basically agree with), if he wants to sell these things the simple fact of the matter is that if he tries to restore them they are going to be rendered worthless unless he is a restoration expert (which, no offense intended, does not seem to be the case here).
It's different when a collector buys an originial piece in dubious condition and pays to have it restored professionally, or, in rare instances, has the capability to properly restore something themselves. Dave, those guys are getting those things restored because they are making an investment in the object, either for monetary gain or for historical relevance.
I am not a collector, but the fact is if you want to sell them you have to cater to your market, and that market is pretty crystal clear on wanting pieces that are unaltered regardless of condition.
BTW, I'm sorry to hear about your Dad.
BTW my dad died in 2004, this safe has sat around in and out of the weather with everybody thinking it was empty until my brother got curious after he found the combination to it.
No hurry though.
