    Lock found in Charleston... Ideas?

    MY FIRST FIRST FIND

    I found this lock in Charleston in my Aunts backyard. I have not been able to find the same symbol online yet so if anyone has any ideas on this one I would appreciate it.

    Hello fever,

    Welcome to TNet & thanks for showing us your lock. It's a Slaymaker, I believe. They made many different styles, and used many logos over the years.

    Huh. Funny. I literally just through at the lock on that second picture. It was on my dresser that my dad had when he was a child and lost the key. So 1970s.

    Cool thanks I thought it may be a Slaymaker but was unable to find this design. I saw somewhere that they stopped producing in the 30s but I could be wrong of course.

    Fraim - Slaymaker Can't judge the dimensions but guessing 5" Should bring around $4 - 5
    I know it's here, just need a bigger coil!
