Antique 'No-Key' COMBINATION CUTAWAY Padlock

This is one of my favorite padlocks. This cutaway version is awesome.

Antique 'No-Key' Combination Cutaway Padlock manufactured by Berkmann Manufacturing of Chicago. Patent date 09/17/07. Listed in Arnall's 6th edition, page 75. 1 7/8" x 2 3/4" (including shackle). Wrought brass metal case, bronze metal spring shackle, eight combination buttons. The combination is known (currently set to 3 buttons) and will be provided with purchase. By pressing the correct button combination (some buttons pushed in from the front, or are pushed in from the back, or are left alone entirely) the cutaway shows the internal mechanism operating as the shackle is released. In excellent antique condition (see pics), cutaway expertly done by a professional locksmith/lockmaker. This auction has a reserve of $274.99.

ABOUT OUR CUTAWAYS: Starting with a working padlock, the lock is carefully disassembled and the case milled to reveal internal working parts. Depending upon the lock, the face, back and sides of the case and shackle, and internal visible parts are carefully polished and the padlock is reassembled and tested (the lock as pictured is the lock you will receive). Each cutaway is a one-of-a-kind gem, created by an expert locksmith and collector (Randy Oxley). These cutaways are hand-made in very limited numbers, so if you are interested please don't wait to bid. The quality and performance as a collector's cutaway are guaranteed! - eBay (30 Nov 2012)

This padlock had a high bid of $290.99 (Plus $8.95 Shipping).
