This is a Norwich Masonic story padlock made around 165 years ago. I bought this last week. It will have a key soon, custom made by me. I will detail the process soon and add it to youtube. Only 2 out of 4 teeth of the key actuate the locking lever, inside the lock. The lock depicts the Square and Compass with a capital "G" to symbolize God and/or Geometry. There is also a triangle and what I believe to be a trowel. This is the smaller size padlock. So few of these are known to exsist, that little information is available to us collectors. Its by far the coolest padlock I have had the pleasure of owning, working with and unlocking.
