Here is something that does not come up for sale every day, if ever. There is a subset of padlock collectors that only collect Winchester padlocks. That partly explains the high bidding on this auction.
Up for auction is a complete set of original/authentic Winchester padlocks, These locks are all in excellent condition with some being NOS and all have working keys with most having original keys. This set is the cream of the crop and I will let the pictures do the talking. You will not find a nicer set of Winchester locks than this one. - eBay (19 Jan 2012)
This padlock collection had a high bid of $3,383 (Plus $20 Shipping) but failed to meet the reserve price.-----
