Back Up Next

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 75"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.
