Try putting the month and day of his birthday in reverse.

Example: instead of may 3, 2003 (5-3-03) put 3 of may, 2003 (3-5-03)

After that, go find the owner and bust his kneecaps with a baseball bat....

haha Ive got a few things im gonna try today. If not ill give a locksmith a call. I dont mind drilling it and honestly, I could probably do that myself and patch it. I do want to end up reseting the combination and using it myself. lol, I also doubt that I find anything very valuable if anything at all in it but if your from Cleveland he is a big name. Me and my buddies think its already been cracked and its the last bomb around waiting for Greene himself to open it. X( At one point cleveland had the most bombings of any city. Mostly car bombs because of this guy. Id like to just find something with his name.

Wedding anavesary?
Kids birthday?
Moms birthday?

I would suspect it would be a number that he could remember easliy, Like after a night of drinking he would still know it.
This probly does not help you but thought I would throw my 2 cents in.
Good luck

Know any chemistry geeks with lab access? Have them apply a little something to the bottom of the safe, something a lil pasty; flip it over after the reaction has started getting bubbly. Get somebody to weld you a new bottom afterwards & be sure you bolt that puppy to the floor if you decide to use it.

Lol did you try 1-2-3-4, if that dont work he was a very good boxer and marksman for the military and was into weight lifting, read about all of his skills and look for any numbers of personel records he set like longest range shot, fav cal gun, fav model gun, how much weight he could lift, thats what most people set combos or passwords to like 1897 cuz i like the trench gun would be one example. I would agree though, if all elese fails take a dang cut of wheel to it, anything inside im positive will offset the money you pay for a good grinder and a few cutoff wheels.

Cutting hinges will not open a safe unless it is a real cheep safe, and I don’t know right off hand any Diebold Safes that were made that cheep. It has been some 20+ years sense I worked on a safe like that and if it were here I would open it for you.
I remember back in the days as a equipment custodian, we found a 2 drawer Diebold, the unt did not have the funds for a locksmith. The base folks tried and stop after seeing what might have been asbestos; but, bio-environmental said no!

We had EOD blow it! Small charges of C-4, 1/4 stick did not even touch it! Then used 1/2 stick somewhat took the drawer cover off. Last, was 2 full bricks (shaped) - she was final opened! Empty!

I have old school pics via 35mm camera. Will try and find and post! Too many photo albums!

Well i got the safe open, with minimal damage and without the combination. I wont say how on the internet because it was so easy. Lets say i did not guess the combo, did not cut grind or blow it. when i did guess the combination i did try a lot of numbers that seemed like good ones. none of them worked. There is a chance it was not his safe too.

Unfortunately the safe is completely empty and i still had no information on the safe. But none the less i did learn a lot more about Danny Greene, locks, and safes. I took the tumblers, dial and bars out. Im going to mount them on my wall as a fully working lock as a souvenir. Was a lot of fun but without any proof at all, there is no value.

one problem with guessing the combinations was that without any knowledge of the safe I didnt know what type of lock it was. It could have had a 3-6 tumblers/number combination and it could have been in LRLR (left right) or a RLRL dial sequence. I could hear the tumblers click but there was also other noise and my untrained ear could not tell exactly what was going on. There is definitely and art to locksmithing and it was a fun adventure all around.
