Sargent & Greenleaf, Rochester, New York -
2 movements, Model # 3A
Model #3A. c. 1890's. This is a rare version of the model #3
using the same dual movement as found in the more common #3 models but in a smaller case;
excluding the normal bolt works. Also has original winding eyelets in the glass that were
often lost when the glass was broken as well as the optional etched logo on the glass. The
lock was designed to sit on top of a
separate automatic bolt opener. This
was a brief transitional design therefore few were made and very few survive.
5 3/4"w x 3 3/4"h x 3"d. Case #1513,
movement #1510. file 67
Below is a Diebold safe that contains a S&G #3A. Unfortunately there was a
tag placed over the time lock.
