This isn't a do it yourself endeavor, unless you like the idea of dialing a very large number of possible combinations. You'll need to hire a safe technician if it's locked and the combination is unknown.
If you do that, get as much information as you can about its appearance . . . details of everything you see.
Better still, take clear digital photos before starting to look for a technician and make them available. Full frontal shot, hinges, dial and handle close-up. Clear is best, dim or fuzzy is a why bother.
Don't let someone who "thinks he might be able to open it" work on it. If someone "tries" and doesn't supply the desired result, don't pay for a failure.
