This padlock had a starting bid of $99.95 (With Free Shipping) but failed to bring any bids.
Up for your consideration is a huge vintage German padlock and key. The padlock was made by the Stahlhart Company and has an inscription on the back. I have no idea what it says so if anyone can tell me I would appreciate it. The key is a barrel key design. Highly collectable
