It has been in the 80's. Then they wanted to retrieve the safe, over a legendary rumor that it was filled with gold jewelry.
Unfortunately, they didn't found any significant.
That Sunday, many people took back values, as they had already in mind to prepare luggage to disembark early on Wednesday.

Hi guys

Do you know if the pursors office has been explored at all? I cant remember where it is, C deck?
On Youtube there's extensive video of the Pursers Office being explored. It's actually quite intact still. You can see the tubing for the mail system as well as a giant safe that extends from the floor to the ceiling. However of that safe, only one of the handles are visible due to silt coverage, but it confirms it's still there in its' original place.

The safe that was recovered was not the safe from the Enquiry Office, but was the safe for the A La Carte Restaurant. This safe would have not, by any means, have had gold jewellery.

The safe in the Enquiry Office still stands where it was in 1912, on C-Deck, mounted on an oak stand with two iron stay bars securing it to the ceiling. Passengers did not, in fact, gather their valuables from this safe on Sunday considering they weren't due in New York for three days. In fact, many of the passengers filed claims for these items after the sinking, and it amounted to quite a hefty number. These items are most likely still sitting in that safe today,

Recovering them though would be next to impossible. This safe was steel plated and there is no way to cut that open at that depth, to unlock it at that depth (if even possible due to corrosion) or to cut it out of its steel mounts. As fascinating as that would be, unfortunately, not practical.
