Still has a rusted chain attached, makes me wonder if it got cut off a box of goodies! Found this at the new honey hole. Only find worth keeping today. No rivets strangely enough. Very small but very dense/solid. Can’t find any markings on it- Any guesses?

The brass lock even had a cover for the key. It slides like it was new, I do not remember how long the iron one in the picture was in for but you can see it was pretty well ate u. Just be careful AND KEEP A CLOSE EYE ON THEM WHEN SOAKING IF YOU TRY

I think I found one like yours, measurements of yours will confirm if it's the same, look at lock #5196 about midway down at this link.

Click on the photo and it will enlarge it in another window.

I can't say enough times keep an eye on the lock every hour or so. You do not want it destroyed
