This is a very unusual and special padlock. The trick lies in a pretty simple covered keyhole design. They've actually gone to a lot of trouble for a very little deception. The top keyhole is normally closed and can't accept the key. Inserting the key into the bottom keyhole and turning that circular section opens the shutter in front of the top keyhole. From t it operates normally. Good condition: much remaining black paint and the rest superficial rust. Brasswork in good shape and normal tarnish. No damage. One wrought or cast iron barrel key. This is a large, heavy lock. The dimensions are 4 inches wide by 5 3/4 inches high. Weight 1 lb 7.3 oz
