    Default Brass Padlock ..Gordios

    Here another Patent number 1718130 almost same as Gordios Lock. The only thing funny about it whatever to call it Tumble lock or Combination Lock. I believe should be Tumble Lock....Timothy.....

    Nice one Timothy, theres some real interesting info there, 1920's Berlin too, it could well prove quite a significant find.

    That number must be a typo, when I search it at USPTO it shows me a 'Horse Hay Rake'.
