This padlock had an opening bid of $475 (Plus $10.95 Shipping) but failed to attract any bids.
This is a rare old "Hobbs & Co" all brass customs excise padlock. This is in good overall condition with age appropriate wear, great untouched patina and comes with a working key. This monster measures 3 1/4"w x 5 3/8"h x 1 1/2"thick and weighs several pounds. This is a rare lock and would make a great addition to your collection for 1/2 the cost the last one was offered to me for. - eBay (7 Dec 2010)
