Obama has hired you as a PI and you walk into the Oval Office.
He steps up from his desk, shakes your hand and hands you a page torn from a diary. "Don't ask where I found it." As you glance down, you see written in a vivid blue pen:
It's 2 months to the day since the election, and with the new president about to take office I need to hide some of my stuff in the safe."
You glance up and ask Obama why he doesn't just hire a locksmith to which he responds after the Clinton emails, he is very wary with who he trusts, and thus he only wants a 4 digit numeric combo (xx-xx), he won't even let you know where the safe is or any details about it.
You ask, "Is this it?"
He hands you another page. The 2nd page has the following on it:
After you glance up he gives you a 3rd page saying, "This one is for you to keep and test. It's probably unimportant, so find out whatever you guys find out, maybe radiocarbon date the age of the page or something, I'm not even sure which administration it's from. For consistency sake, this final page is the same type of paper and ink."
You nod and glance down at the final page. Here you see a scribbling of a person like thing wearing a tie and a vest over it. It has a huge head and something large is behind its back.
You say your good byes and when you are finally away from the penetrating glares of the Secret Service you begin to think. First, you guess it will take 24-48 hours to get back the results of testing the page (this means the hints if needed). Secondly you begin to wonder what this combo is?
A chromatography test reveals that it is a BIC rollerball pen and the page is from the late 90's early 2000's
