    You're obviously a bunch of dumb asses...the lock mechanism alone is often worth more than what the whole safe can be sold for, and A LOT of people both safe owners and locksmiths will pay a nice price for just the lock mechanism.
    Me and my wife collected late 1800's to early 1900's safes for around 10 years and when we couldn't sell the safe due no buyers in our area or due to the extreme weight that causes ridiculous shipping costs which turns buyers away, I would cut out the lock when not having the combination, and then only took no more than 2-3 weeks until it got sold on Ebay for average of 350.00....keeping in mind how if the safe doesn't have it's original artwork, isn't a rare design, or otherwise is in bad condition these safes aren't worth as much as people think.

    We kept two Diebold safes for ourselves which one has the rare jewelers door on the inside, and diebold locks from the late 1800's to early 1900's can easily bring 400.00 to 600.00 depending on the model and even more money when concerning Diebold's Dynamite series locks

        I don't think it was locked either. Look at the position of the handle

          I don't belive that safe was locked, just rusted tight shut

                                    This looks exactly like my grandfather safe. I'll never forget that safe. It's a shame you guys are smashing it up. You can get good money for a safe like that.I think that safe was already open. I don't think it's that easy to bust open that safe. Shame too, the safe could have been refurbished. Sold it for some good cash. Oh well, stupid is as stupid does.

                                      We tried to sell it, and have professionals open it, but the cost of moving the safe was more than we could get for selling it. Real shame. I would have loved to have known that we sold some old grandfather's safe. Instead I love knowing I smashed open some grandfather's safe.

                                    I would have bought that safe before it was destroyed! Now it's scrap!

                                      May 10 2012 was a Thursday, and I was at an auction, buying a safe, for my collection. I have since sold all my safes, and moved.

                                      Where were you on May 10th, 2012? Cause it would have been way more helpful to have known that then, instead of now, which is back then now.

                                    It's more like force opening it than cracking it.

                                      When you're making an omelette do you force open eggs? No. Because that would be rape.

                                      You crack open eggs. You crack open safes. And you crack open people's cold hearts and warm them with love. That's how life works.

                                      That was soooooooo dangerous those days they put fucking tear gas vials in the safe door so that robbers could bust the door like that never mind the fact that tear gas that old could have turned to cianide !

                                        If I can ask...how expensive were the price quotes you received to open the safe? And what did you have to compare those quotes to?

                                          The quotes were between $500 and $1k, all from places in the area.

                                          I agree, even on the inner door you can see the key lock's bolt is extended yet it's just pulled open with the try bar without effort. The safe was already dialed open and the smashing of the dial was for "effects"...

                                          You think banging on the lock a few times with a sledge hammer would have opened it?

                                        This is not Cracking a safe. Cracking a safe is opening it without destroying it or it's contents. Get a professional

                                          Unfortunately what he did was actually closer to what safe cracking is... the term "safe cracking" actually means what it says where by early safes were made from cast iron and could literally be cracked open due to cast iron's properties of being brittle, but it wasn't until later on that the phrase was given a new twist of the original meaning to now mean break into a safe without actually breaking it to get inside.

                                          About a month later the guy hammering the safe walked into a local bank and walked out with 18 silver dollars. Someone tried to sell them to the bank, which can only accept them at their marked value. The clerk didn't want them, so he sold them to my buddy for $18. True story.

                                          spend 80 bucks to open the safe and then sell it for well over 2500 bucks and keep the contents as well but no, beat the shit out of it . Pffff *facepalm. Kids these days

                                            Mickey,  just the lock alone is worth 350.00 and so total up any other parts that are sought after by the many people restoring these safes. Me and my wife have been buying and selling safes for quite a few years and these locks are QUITE RARE and get SOLD FAST! ...not to mention other parts that can be removed from these safes... the casters are easily worth 100.00 for all 4, the hinge finials (not sure if the safe in video had them) are worth on average 20.00 each, and the other locking mechanisms in the door can be worth 65.00-100.00

                                            That safe in good condition is worth about $350.

                                              We hit the dial because we'd learned it was the weakest part of that style safe, and applying direct force to it would pop the plate behind it.

                                            Clearly not know what you're doing. Smashing the handles will NOT help at all. Perhaps the door if it was because it was rusted. If it was locked properly you'd never get into it like that (or perhaps if you had a century non stop)

                                            Guys, I think the safe wasnt even locked in the first place. The door is very rusty inside and I think this jammed the door. Because just hammering onto the dial to open that kind of safe is simply waste of time and doesnt work.

It was part of a really interesting legal dispute involving a generational fight for the remains of a pioneering business of its era. We glossed over all that and decided to focus on hitting it really hard with a hammer.

                                              You shouldn't ever force a safe to do anything. No means no. Locked means locked.

                                              So you look through peoples trash, find something of value, and destroy it to get your hand on more trash, genius. Pretty shitty that you value trash more than quality craftsmanship.

                                              How? The value of the safe is whatever someone is willing to pay for it. You know what people are willing to pay for? A sledgehammer.

                                              No one thinks of the sledgehammer, do they? No one's crying about how we wrecked a perfectly good sledgehammer on some crummy 'ol safe. This crowd's a real 'the safe is half empty' lot.
                                              Try looking on the bright side. That awful safe will never lock anyone out ever again, and no one will ever forget the combination. In a way, we're heroes. If I was given a gold medal for my bravery, I can tell you one place I'd keep it safe, under my trusty sledgehammer.

                                            The value of that safe was more than what's inside.
                                            This is something like finding a Rolls Royce in a barn, getting a crowbar, and break open the trunk, because something of value is inside.
                                            You could have the stuff inside, *and* a working antique safe.

                                              Andy, booby trapped safes are not "common". Usually when a safe explodes it's due to a burglary in progress and they're trying to cut open the safe with a blow torch which causes the contents to explode. I know of two such incidents in the last few years but both safes were not booby trapped. One blew from commercial grade fireworks inside and the other was from storage of black powder inside, neither were booby trapped. One place you just might see a safe booby trapped would be from drug dealers. That's why when the safe is unlocked you never stand nearby when the handle is turned and the door opened...

                                              While many safes were retrofitted with tear gas vials and canisters, most commonly from a company called Badger, they have not and can not change chemical composition and explode. That's an old wives tale and nothing more. Personally, after watching the video I believe the safe was already dialed to the unlocked position and then the sledge hammer smashing began. Unless they got real lucky normally smacking the dial inward a small bit as in the video may knock off the "wheel pack" but still would leave the safe locked by the drive wheel which is attached to the opposite end of the spindle that goes to the dial.

                                              We tried banging all sort of things. Oh, the banging we did. Bang this. Bang that. Bang. Bang. Bang.

                                              At one point I had it on a pallet jack rolling down a hill and almost smashed it into a security gate.
                                              The banging was the least of its problems.
                                              If I could do it all over again, I'd probably drop it off the side of a building.
