In for the old .38 revolver, speed loader, and ammo. There may also be a stone tablet with Burnadell's social security number..."3".

Put some tape over the hole you drilled and concrete over the whole thing to drive someone else nuts later.

I worked retail in College and we had a safe like that built above the floor in our office since the cabinet style was broken into once. That was a solid safe and I watched the locksmith install it. I remember the head would drop in and spin around once the bolts were extended. It would just spin freely in the bolt race and the little handle would offer no leverage at all to pry it out.

If it were me, I would rent a jackhammer and remove the entire safe from the floor and get into it from the bottom or side. I remember it just being a metal pipe like canister with the major hardware being the top. After all, if it's encased in concrete, those sides are not near as vulnerable.

I just recently opened 2 safes from a house fire and the contents were minimal, was not very exciting at all. We knew the guy was an gun collector but there was only a burnt up 20 gauge inside and some paperwork.

UPDATE: Screw cutting into the top. That has sucked. I decided to remove the concrete and take the entire thing out. About an inch down from the top rim is a 2" wide lip. Its slow but I am about half way around. Hopefully its just a lip and the entire safe isn't that big with footers sticking out another couple inches at the bottom.

The safe body should be just a straight tube, having about a 2-4 inch greater radius than the safe head itself.

Yep, ol' Gerald'o would be so jealous!! At least we know this safe is real and there IS something inside!! I'm in for the out-come... I bet it's a time capsule... can't wait to hear the 38 Special tapes and see the baseball candy bar wrapped in foil (silver ingot)!!

I like the go fund me idea. Then if I don't find anything I still WIN!!!!!

However I started digging more concrete and it is not a round safe. The lid is round but the safe appears to be a 13X13 square. Hoping to clear the concrete away from the top and then cut. Maybe it will be less than 2' thick.
