Diebold made and still makes a wide variety of safes and vaults. In business since mid 1800s, still very healthy.

As for price do you mean original selling price? Or are you trying to value it for sale and removal?

If the latter, you need to factor the cost of not only the door and frame but also the cost of removal, which would come from a source local to you. There's no Blue Book of prices on old vault doors, they're considered fixtures if installed. Values of actual doors are in the eye and wallet of the beholder.

One might see no value beyond scrap metal by weight and give you a bid for dismounting and haulaway, someone else might get excited and offer you money for the privilege of doing the same. The trick is to find that second type of prospect.
