Combination Lock - Rochester Safety Lock Co.

Here is an interesting combination lock.




From a very old estate comes this vintage unusual brass combination lock. Measures about 2 inches wide and 2 1/4 long. Very nice condition, my pictures do it no justice. Unusual shape, maybe for a bag of some sort?? Hasp reads Rochester safety lock Co. Rochester indiana--other side reads a761. Top of lock reads Pat. Feb. 18-08 other pats. pend. hard to see in my picyure, but bottom is numbered 1-10--looks to be a fairly simple combination to figure out if you have time. Sold as you see it!! Winning bidder adds 4.00 shipping and adds insurance if desired!

On Jun-22-09 at 16:09:15 PDT, seller added the following information:

I don't want to mislead anybody--bottom is not marked 1-10, as stated, but is marked 0-9, there is a bar sepersting the numbers that made it look like 10 at first glance--hope this helps!! - eBay (28 June 09)

This combination lock had a high bid of $364 (Plus $4 Shipping).

I have one of these locks. I live about 30 miles from Rochester Indiana. I have the lock, orig. box, instructions, and the cobination #'s. All are in great shape. I did some research and found that this was designed to be used on postal mail bags. wonder what it is worth will all the parts i have?

I have no idea what the lock is worth, would be happy to chat should you still have the lock regarding a purchase if interested; otherwise, just a chat, possibly to see images of the lock might be enjoyable. I NEVER heard of the manufacturing company & would be glad to hear more!
