    Default Could Anyone Please Help With This?

    Hi Everyone.........This brass/iron combination padlock has come into our Cancer Charity shop and although I am pretty good on antiques and hallmarks I do not know enough about padlocks but I know this must be a fairly old padlock so my questions are........

    How old is it please?

    Where would it have be made?

    It is PATENTED.

    What does SAFAS mean?

    ........and to prove I am not a complete Dummy I managed to open the combination lock in just under 4 hours! Lucky or what!

    Thanks in advance for any help.......Regards Moonraker.
