    Default Vintage Eagle Padlocks

    Here are some of the vintage Eagle padlocks that I was able to acquire. Very beautiful pieces if you ask me. I love the one with the "Eagle" at the front. Does anyone know the number or letters for that keyway (the grey one)?

    I may post more Eagle padlocks here if I can get my hands on them.

    I believe the original Eagle blank was 11625. Crosses to these equivalents and others:
    164 Atlas, 163 Keil, EA6 Kis, 4EA4 Star, 61DX Taylor, 3920 Hazelton, 14DX Dominion, EA 13 Curtis, EA13 Ilco, 014DX Osco, 164DX Keil, 11461 Eagle, EAG 5D JMA, 1014DX Ilco, 11625B Eagle

    For me, Yale and Eagle padloks are the best.

    WoW!

    I am amazed as always Pete, thank you so much
    Where do you have that picture from if I may ask, an old Eagle catalog maybe? Do you also have it in a larger resolution? I need it for some research that I am still working on here.

    Thank you in advance!

    Cool.. This Eagle made great antique locks. They ceased being in existence as a business in 1954. Eagle was manufactured in Terryville, Conn. As far as I know this is iron and brass...Cheers !

    Eagle went bankrupt in June, 1975. See Locks and Lockmakers of America, Rev. 3rd Edition by Thomas F. Hennessy, pg. 15.
