I bought a 1867 combination safe lock to replace a keyed lock that was drilled many years ago on a 1865 pedestal safe I have. According to the person I bought the "newer" lock from says it still works. It is 4 1/2 inches wide and 3 1/4 inches high. The dial is 3 1/4
Inches across. I tried the combination but I couldn't get it to open.  
I donít quite understand the numbers he has written down for the combo,
4 L 25
1/2, 3 R 1 1/2, -2 L 15 1/2, and 1 R to stop 47

Any help on deciphering the combination for me? The left and right are easy the Ė2?

Thanks TK
