I have this old filing cabinet that has a safe in it with a Sargent and Greenleaf combo lock. The dial is about the circumference as the bottom of a coffee cup. On the inside of the cabinet door I see written in pencil from top down: L4 X 22 L3 X 85 L2 X 30 R1 X stop.
I have imagined this to be the combination (did I mention I do not know it?). Staring at 1, then left to 30, right past 85 to 85, and then left back to 22. This however yields no results, nor allows me access to the bag of diamonds that is surely inside. I have attempted the reverse of this as well without luck. Thoughts?
