Hey my name is J.D. I have purchased a cole cabinet with a combination lock. It was unlocked when I bought it and was not given the combination. I closed it out of reflex and spun the dial as smooth as if I knew what I was doing. Read a lot here and have not figured out how to decipher the "code" numbers behind the middle drawer. Anyway here are my numbers and would really appreciate any assistance. N-250562

Hello. I'm Kevin and I'm brand new to the site, so please forgive my ignorance. I have read through some threads, and it seems as though some might be able to help me with an unknown combination to a Cole Steel cabinet safe I bought at an auction recently. The entire thing is empty, but I would very much like to use the safe.

<UPDATE> Thank you to anyone who would have answered this for me. After some more "puzzling it out" with the information I read on this site, I was able to figure out my combination!

Hello! I recently purchased a cole steel filling cabinet with safe inside off of market place. Of course there was no key or code, but I already switched out the cam lock on the front but have had no lucks decoding the safe lock. The code on the inside reads N-102079.

Hi my name is Todd.. I like those before me have come to aquire a Cole safe with a combination lock I don't have the combination for. In the rear of the top drawer the previous owner had what could be safe manual, purchase receipt, and a 2nd key(not for door)

Wheel size is 3"
Code on back wall is N806329

The potential receipt has what looks like a combination string, but I can't get it to open. Can't believe iv never come across this forum. I've been hobby lock picking for years(I blame White Collar TV show, that guy picked locks every episode lol) but I appreciate any help if anyone can decipher the wall code

Ps. There isn't a gun in the safe. Lol. It's empty as far as I can't tell. I've flipped and tipped it enough times while building into a metrology station to know... I woukd have heard that.

Thanks in advance for anyone who can help

That's the date of purchase, not the combination. 29th December 1987.

I'm sure someone that remember the formula can translate your code into the combination. Unfortunately I've forgotten it.

Good luck
