Mosler Corliss Antique Safe For Sale

Mosler Corliss Antique Safe

General The Corliss Safe Company, incorporated in 1877, made safes under it's own name (and it's own facility in Auburn, R.I.)) until purchased by Mosler in 1895. This model appears to be a Mosler model made somewhere between 1895-1920--likely in New York. . The safe is fully functional. This includes five combination locks, two single movement S&G timelocks, a rotating inner ball, a fully operating circular locking cam (C-ring), a gear mechanism to extend (lock) and withdraw (unlock) the C-ring, and a gear mechanism to move the inner ball from the locked (forward) position to the unlocked (inward) position, and an inner ball which rotates 360 degrees and locks in place in the appropriate locations. If you are unfamiliar with precisely how the safe operates, I have a detailed explanation (in English) on a Polish site, My Virtual Museum (Myvimu.com)-- or you can ask a question here.
Specifications Measures 68" high, 41" wide, 36" deep. Wall thickness varies, ranging from 9 - 9.5" . Estimated weight 13,500#. The safe has 4 functioning wheels. There are three minor repairs. First, I replaced the spinner portion of the hand crank with a section of solid copper bar stock. There also is evidence that the hand crank was welded (before my time). There is a minor repair to a corner of one of the (three) inner doors (seen only from the inside). All inner gears and mechanisms are in pristine condition. The time locks appear to have been made by S&G, as a set for the Corliss. I believe they are "Model 4". The time locks were removed when I bought the safe and I never put them back in. They both work - without problem.
Shipping At no extra cost to the purchaser, I agree to crate the safe (using treated 4x4 lumber) so that it can be safely lifted onto a flatbed and off. I also agree to arrange to have the safe loaded onto a flatbed located on the street in front of my house (residential neighborhood). I would require a minimum of 7 days notice. Buyer must arrange and pay all fees associated with transportation of the safe from in front of my house to a destination of their choosing, and final unloading. I am not well versed on long haul trucking but can can provide these tips. First, arrange to have someone backhaul the load. This means the trucker has already made deliveries to my area (Oshkosh, WI) and now will settle for a reduced fee to go to your area to avoid going back empty. When I had it done 5-6 years ago it cost me about $1 per mile. Second, plan on having a small crane nearby. Most wrecker services which move large trucks can handle this. 5-6 years ago I paid $150 to get it off the flat bed and to within 5 feet of my garage door. Obviously, prices vary. Finally, I would send the time locks, handle, and keys separately (at my expense).
The Fine Print It should go without saying, but, ask questions before you offer. If you would like additional pictures or a video, no problem. If you would like to visit me, fine, just contact me beforehand. If you decide to arrange an "inspection visit", please do so before the sale end date. I will work with you on this if the sale end needs to be extended, permitting. Please note that once the sale ends the time for inspection and discussion is over.
Whether you offer or not, please enjoy the pictures and information. I welcome any questions or comments.
