    I'm not really sure what this lock was for. It was made by Ames sword company, patent September 19, 1882. What are your thoughts on this piece.

      Not sure Kerry. It's about the size of 50 Cents.

      Jono, I was hoping to get an uninterrupted nites sleep! Ames even made bronze cannons. Don't know what all they made but guess I can now include locks. Why would anybody lock a sword? "Sorry, I didn't know it was loaded!". They were diversified so it doesn't have to be military. Maybe they thought "sword co." made it sound better for their market? Without research, I think this comes down to "what do you want to hear".

      Lucas, LOL, I have several new style cad locker lock, little more stought and such, but would make sense for a weapons mfg to produced a lock for explosives,"Back in the day"

      I had a brass lock before that said AMMUNITION & had the ordnance seal stamped on.
