Alan sent in this old electric safe on eBay, it buzzed when it was lifted…

German Collectible Antique Safety Box Safe with electronic alarm. 9 1/2 x 7 1/2 x 5 1/4 inches. Very old Safe. With key. Bottom stamped, Made in Germany. With what appears to be a SN of 9500. I don’t know how old this is, but I would estimate 1940’s to 1950’s. But you be the judge of the age. Safe has an electronic internal alarm that would actuate if the box got lifted off any surface. However, the alarm does not work, as the battery has been bad for who knows how long. I have no idea if the alarm would work if a new battery was found for this box. While the outside of the box shows surface rusting, the rust is just that……surface rust. Non seems to be going any further. Key lock works fine. Top handle is missing. Has ONE key included. Safe weighs almost 11 pounds.
