Vintage Brass U.S. Registered Mail Padlock w Counter





This is a vintage, early 1900's era, Brass United States Mail Registered Mail Padlock with a counter.

This superb padlock, made by Smith & Egge was used in the post office before computers and forms became the main stay. This heavy, sturdy, brass padlock was used to keep track on how often someone opened the registered mail bag.

When the key was inserted and pushed into the bottom of the padlock, the unusual, split shackle at the top, opened and spun around, and locked, causing the numerical counter to advance another number. That way a supervisor or the post master could see how many times the registered mail had been handled.

This padlock is pictured on page 236 #1, in Franklin M. Arnall s book The Padlock Collector.

The padlock measures 2+1/2 inches tall, 1+3/4 inches wide and 1+1/4 inches thick.

It comes with a working key and works great!

It does have dings, dongs and scratches from decades, but it is still in superb working and great order.

A fantastic, and seldom seen on E-Bay, vintage, counter padlock! - ebay

This lock sold for $58 (Plus $10 shipping)
