    Hello All,
    Would anyone be able to narrow down the age of manufacture for this Chubb Padlock.
    Serial 168645
    And is marked “Makers to His majesty”

    I have another similar padlock that is marked “Makers to Her majesty” that dates 1895.
    Im guessing this one is older?
    Thank you,

    I would have expected a 7-digit serial number, and that would make it around 1913.

    Thanks Magpie,
    I have found a Chubb production list but I’m not sure if I’m on the right track.
