Edwin Cotterill’s padlock

I really like these padlocks. I still have yet to catch one at the right price.

Edwin Cotterill’s padlocks are amongst the most prized by collectors and are extremely rare. This is a really big, extremely sturdy and heavy one (nearly 1kg) – it is 5 inches tall and has company name and factory location (Birmingham) and makers marks. The lock is working perfectly and has two original very complicated keys. It is in great condition. The escutcheon is held in place by a little sprung button on the body of the lock. The end of the key is used to depress the button and move the escutcheon to reveal the keyhole. Rare and very collectable lock. - eBay (18 Nov 2012)
This padlock had a high bid of 555 British Pounds/$879.45 (Plus 22 Pounds Shipping).
