1890s RPO lock padlock

Here is an example of a recent sale for this kind of seal padlock.

1890s cast brass case lock with rotating shackle This padlock has a cast case, shackle collar, and rotating shackle made of architectural bronze. It is sold with a fitted key. What you see is what you get. The serial number is H 8798 and it has been opened 0354 times --I tried it a couple of times after taking the last photo to make certain that it works smoothly. The key opens the lock and can be removed.

Please check my other listings for other items that might be interesting collateral items for your collection. If you purchase one of those other lots, this group can be added for $4 covering incremental postage. There is never a reserve for any of my auctions.

Locked bags were transported aboard RPOs in the custody of the Clerk-in-Charge.

Proceeds benefit restoration of the Boyce, Virginia, railway station as well as monthly utility expenses. - eBay (6 Jan 2013)
This padlock had a high bid of $137.50 (Plus $8 Shipping).
