Rare Slaymaker-Barry Antique Masonic Story Padlock Vintage Lock

Up for auction is an incredibly rare Slaymaker-Barry Masonic Story Padlock. This is one of the rare, most desirable story padlocks. According to Jon Kolozvary, this padlock is a second casting and is 100% authentic. If you dont know who Jon Kolozvary is, he's an expert on story padlocks and his collection has been featured in literature and online. Hes even written a book on them. This padlock was probably produced in 1880 A.D. The key that I included is crude. My rotary tool broke, so im selling this as is. The key works and opens the padlock, every time. I will include the 1mm thick sheet metal that the key was cut from, that way, you can continue the project. By itself, this padlock is rare. Mine is in great condition with excellent lines and detail and no major marring to the metal. This padlock is museum quality. You may never get a chance to own a Masonic Padlock this nice again. I inluded a picture that shows the brass finish, underneath the patina. I refuse to clean the patina off. Thats for the collector to do. In the picture showing the shackle while open, you can see the shiny iron, proving it is original iron with brass plating.
