    Brass Railroad lock found in privy.

    This is the metal find of the day. This is back marked H&BT RR. I found a pile of old bottles and a two stoneware pieces. The lock was used by The Huntingdon & Broad Top Railroad and is a rare find. The privy dirt preserved it pretty well. This is my second lock I have found from this line and I couldn't be happier. Thanks for looking! DD

    Nice hunk of RR brass...and your 2nd one even better. I love finding old padlocks. Makes me wonder what treasures lie behind locked doors!

    With the prices some of these locks command, I'd love to see one on the finds banner up top at some point. Is the time frame on this one 1870-90?

    GREAT find!
