Picked up a old safe from a deceased neighbors family last week, found this inside. Dated 1953
Post WWII Safe

Thanks for posting! I had safe doors like that for many years that I never ended up installing, and I gave them away prior to my move to Ohio. Mine had an insert just like yours, but I couldn't see the vials, as they were encased in some kind of resin, or similar substance. Somewhere, I have photos of the doors and the insert, but I need to find them on another computer.

Not what I was expecting when I removed the bolts on the black box, I was actually taking a look at how to change the combination, never even noticed the sticker above the black box. Looks like enough gas to mess up a burglar pretty good. My google search of this kind of booby trap shows that this stuff is left over gas form WWII. Any more info would be greatly appreciated.
