A two piece iron padlock with a set of two different keys and a tag. The lock consists of two separate cast iron pieces, the body (a) and the shackle (b). There is a raised five-pointed star around the keyhole. The body contains a cylinder which moves to engage the lock and shackle. The shackle is a “U” shaped cylinder with notches that engage with the cylinder. There is a small rectangular key hole in the oval shaped bottom that has a raised five-pointed star around it. There is a ridge around the circumference of the oval.
The padlock is accompanied by two different keys on a metal key ring (c). There is a cast iron key that has a flat blade with a square or notch like serrations on both sides, and an oval bow with large holes side by side. This key opens the lock. There is also a cast brass skeleton key that has a cylindrical shaft with a rectangular blade at the end with rectangular notches or serrations. The bow is an oval with a double concave hexagonal center slot flanked by two ovals. The third item attached to the ring is a circular flat iron tag.
