Constructed of brass and Iron.
Civil War Artillery Limber Chest Lock, made of brass and iron. I bought a surplus quantity of these all sold without keys. These were purchased many years ago at auction by another dealer. There were two lots; locks in one small crate, and in the other where the keys….bought by two separate dealers bidding, happy with locks without keys and vice versa? Go figure, right!
The key was a simple notched, hollow round stock iron, and when inserted, turn much like a screw.
Functioning and in very good condition.
2.5 inches high when closed.
Per One lock.
