Thomas L. Pye NY Pyes Patent 1860 Padlock

This is a very nice early period padlock. I wished that I didn't miss the opportunity to bid on it. Maybe next time, if there is a next time...

There are many images so be sure to scroll down to view them of this vintage Pyes Patent seal padlock lock with original key. The last image is of a group of locks for size comparison only each of them will be sold individually. The patent information is with this Pye lock and I will send them along to the new owner and calls it the Thomas L. Pye, New York New York. The dust cover has wording on it of Pyes Patent Sept. 28, 1858 Oct 16, 1860. The dust cover is not spring loaded. The key is original no markings on it and it opens and closes the lock easily. It is a heavy lock being 12 ounces unpacked. The overall height is 3" x 2 1/4" x 7/8" thick. - eBay (17 Jan 2012)
This padlock had a high bid of $280 (Plus $5.95 Shipping).
