Rare Antique No Key Model Cast Iron J&e Stevens Burglar Proof Safe Money Box:
Here is a Very nice Combination Burglar Proof House Safe Bank. Manufactured by the J. & E Stevens Co, Cromwell,Conn. U.S.A. Pat'd Aug. 17 1897. I cannot find another of these on or anywhere else, ALL the others I have found have a key, this does not, a combination only, NO KEY HOLE ANYWHERE There are no Cracks Or Chips Or Repairs. Some time in the past, the screw thjat holds the locking mechanism in place was removed, I have a new one in there for now to hold the lock in place, the old guy did this because he did not have the combination and didn't want it to lock on him, a simple fix, you can see this in the last picture!! In as Found condition. Measures 6 inches tall, 4 1/8 inches deep and 4 3/4 inches wide. RARE variety of this over 100 year old bank!! I WILL BE OUT OF TOWN ON VACATION FROM JUNE 8TH UNTIL JUNE 15, MY HELPER DOES NOT DO EMAILS OR SHIPPING WHEN I AM GONE, SO I CANNOT SHIP TO YOU UNTIL THE 15TH OF JUNE. All my pictures are of the actual item on sale DO NOT PAY VIA S INVOICE SYSTEM, THEY ARE WRONG MORE TIMES THAN NOT, WAIT FOR MY INVOICE!! Please excuse the higher handling cost, it is the only way allows us to cover the cost of insurance, we sellers cannot afford to eat that cost, and once again, s stupid rules make it harder on seller and buyer alike. They just don't get it!!! INSURANCE WILL BE ADDED TO ALL ITEMS OVER 50.00. INTERNATIONAL buyers ATTENTION: (NO EXCEPTIONS) All items, (regardless of weight) will be shipped either (A) Priority Mail or (B) Registered mail which is $11.50 in addition to shipping cost. The most economical option will be used. If it is $250 or more, it will be shipped EXPRESS mail, which can get expensive. This is to due to Paypal's rules, as there is no other way to verify delivery and I am getting tired of losing out because customs holds up or "loses" my packages. Paypal is preferred method of payment but all forms of payment accepted! All of the items you see listed in my sales are fresh stuff, not from shops and sales. I am and have been for 37 years, a door to door picker and that is where all my items come from. So keep a close eye on all my sales, you never know what I will find!! We combine for shipping if you buy multiple items. ALL OUR ITEMS ARE GUARENTEED TO BE AS STATED AND THIS IS THE ONLY REASON WE REFUND, THESE ARE ANTIQUES AND AS SUCH, ARE NOT MASS PRODUCED WITH QUALITY CONTROL, SO THERE WILL BE AT TIMES SCRATCHES AND SO FORTH---ANTIQUES. Continued rising peanuts, bubble wrap and labor cost have forced us to add a $1.00 to our handling charge. Unless an object is too large, we always try and ship by priority mail as it is more dependable and we have fewer problems with breakage, but will if possible, use the most economic method possible. Payment must be in U.S. funds. Thank you
