Safe Find | Antique Victor Lock & Safe Co.

Here is a Victor Lock & Safe Company product I found in the Denver Craigslist antique section that lets the imagination run wild.  Starting from the top, it has a decal stating Highest Award – Grand Prize for the Louisiana Purchase Exposition which was held in St. Louis, Missouri in 1904.  The  “Grand Prize” was award to Victor Safe And Lock Company for their display at the show.  They continued to take advantage of this logo for the next 15-20 years.  Literally every safe they manufactured during this period had this decal.  I guess some things never change.  Next we have a decal around the combination lock itself which reads “Department of Justice” “Federal Investigation” “Fidelity-Bravery-Integrity” seems pretty cool to think it might have held some highly classified documents at one time or another.  Hey it is army green!  Weather it did or didn’t it is still a neat safe, read on for several photos of this quality piece of “Made in USA” merchandise.
