I am selling this for a friend who is a private collector. Up for bid is this very rare 1800's antique skull & bones lock. On the bottom of the lock is a square rectangular hole for the key. It no longer has the key with it but is still a great old collectors piece. Measures 4 1/4 long and 3 1/2 wide. Has some minor surface rust on top arch and slightly around the skulls head. Very intricate folk art floral design front and back. It does have a old cut nail in the center of the flower on the back of lock that shows the age. This came from a old farm house in pa. - eBay
This padlock sold for $202.50 (Plus $11.35 Shipping).
Beware, copies were apparently made of this design and might be floating around. Unfortunately, they are not common enough to be able to easily spot real from fake.
