D&RG - Denver & Rio Grande Railroad Small Brass Cast Heart Shape Lock & Key
Item #: 5081 A very nice and hard to find lock and key set from the Denver & Rio Grande Railroad. This is a small brass D&RG cast down panel special-purpose lock with steel shackle, clevis, and a 7 1/2" double link chain. This lock will work with the correct key that is marked "SU 23". We have opened this style of lock with a section house key. The brass key has nice even wear. On the back of the lock, you can still see the outlined letters reading "Missouri Pacific" on either side of the keyhole cover. On right front side, there is some minor dings from years of use. We have seen this several times before and is a manufacturing flaw. The keyhole cover is cast "Remove Key When Locking". The keyhole cover does have a strong spring. Stamped on the shackle are the numbers "88". This brass lock measure 3 3/8" long, and is 2" wide. A great Colorado railroad collectible that will fit in nicely with any collection, how about yours?!
