Clarke Combination Lock - "Navy Ordnance"

The interesting thing about this Clarke Combination Padlock is the Navy marking.

"Clarke Combination Lock Co., Baltimore, MD - Pat'd Feb. 4, 1873, June. 15. 1875, Reissued Feb. 29. 1876, Navy Ordnance" on lock face. The lock works, has old hand written operational instructions with right combination. Lock shows use, dings to brass, but works easily. 4" x 2.25" - eBay (9 May 2012)
This padlock had a 'Buy-it-Now' price of $900 (Plus $6.95 Shipping).

Technological advances have made the electronic combination lock a reality. Combination locks of this nature can incorporate a keypad into their mechanism and require that a user manually enter a key code for access, as through a door.
