It's a monstrous safe, once used by the US Post Office to store their valuables. There are three separate combination locks plus lockable drawers. Though it's very heavy, I moved it rather easily into its present position in my basement through use of a pallet jack. The locks are worn and loose, but with a bit of jiggling they can be made to function. I'm asking $3,500 for the safe, but the price is negotiable. Give me a call at 601-618-7478 if you have an interest in this old jewel.

Photos below are of some of the old and scarce documents kept in a binder on the first floor. They include letters from soldiers (some include the envelopes) and slave sale documents. Come by and take a look.
The Fortress Monroe letter below is one of my favorites.
