Yale & Towne LION Faced Story Lock. Pat. Feb.11 1896

I am traveling so I am not able to check if this is a true story lock or not. Nonetheless, it is an interesting lock indeed.

Up for bid is a YALE Lion Face Lock. Patented February 18th 1896. The shackle is stamped with PAT. (Patent) Feb. 18 1896. Opp side marked Yale & Towne Mfg. Co. Stamford Conn. USA

Roaring Lion face on both sides. Shackle still retains some of the original gilt brass finish over brass. 90% of the original black paint still remains over the steel case. Excellent shape. Shackle has spring to it. No key.

It takes a #25 key. The pictures should tell the story. It would be hard to find one in better shape than this. Size is 3.0 tall x 1.75 wide x.80 thick (nose to nose).

Check out my other padlocks up for auction. Will be listing a few every week - eBay

This interesting padlock had an opening bid of $180 and a buy it now price of $250 (Plus Free Shipping) but failed to attract any bids.
