I deal in reality
I don't know much about locks, but it could be an army lock as stated above. I found one and never could identify it, so I just mounted it. Frank

Clueless as to age etc., but very cool find.

I took the liberty of posting your lock on a lock collector's forum that I subscribe to and received the following reply:
"Your padlock appears to be a Wilson Bohannon US Lock made under an 1873 patent. It is pictured in an article by Robert Dix entitled "US Armed Forces Locks" in the Jan.-Mar. 2012 issue of Journal of Lock Collecting."
