    Default WANTED!.... Wells Fargo & Co Express 6-Lever Pancake Lock

    I am looking for a 6-lever pancake lock marked for "W.F. & Co's EXPRESS" such as the one pictured here. Also looking for other Wells Fargo Express antiques & artifacts such as a strongbox, wooden or porcelain sign, reward poster, broadside, key, lantern, period photographs, etc. Any assistance would be appreciated.
