    Default Antique Corbin 6 Lever Padlock ID Help

    Found a neat lock in a church field while metal detecting and was hoping someone somewhere knew what I had my hands on. Light research has come up with something between 1880's and 1920's and a "shackle lock." It has "H95" stamped on the top. It measures 3' tall by 2" wide and 1/2" wide. Can anyone narrow the date range and/or provide some period context and usage. Please and thank you.

    I can tell you that most all Corbin (and Russwin) padlocks from the era were made by Corbin Cabinet Lock Co., not their sister company P & F Corbin. It does not appear in Corbin Cabinet Lock Co. Catalog No. 38, dated 1928. The logo suggests it likely was produced from 1900-1919, see thumbnail of Historical Research Series #19 from Lock Museum of America attached.

    Thank you for the insight! Are there any other catalogs that might have it? Oh, and I cleaned it up a bit ;). I hope I didn't commit some cardinal sin here o.O

    Richard Chenovick (eMail: rchenovickATjuno.com change AT to @) of The West Coast Lock Collectors Assn. has assumed distribution of the old "KCI Catalog Reprints" originally produced by the late Don Stewart of Key Collectors International. Other then the one I cited, I don't have any of the others so I can't say if your padlock might be included. These were done about thirty years ago and the image quality is not as good as might be expected today although they are legible. A pdf version of the reprint catalog listing as well as other lock and key collector books which Mr. Chenovick sells can be found here:

    The 1928 edition referenced earlier shows No. 02992 on pg. 35 all brass, plain finish. See pdf attached.
