    Simon you need to upload your photos direct to the site, in preference to posting links to iCloud or host sites. Here's how;

    From an iPad/iPhone this doesn’t work well as there is a 2mb limit on size - be good to raise that so can load hi resolution photos.

    Hi Simon, nice to see you’ve started collecting padlocks as well as keys. I told you this collecting carry on is addictive. Just be aware that there are far more padlocks copied than keys! But it’s nice to see your collection is growing 😃

    Hi Mark

    yep I had kind of got into them from the Barron’s keys I had collected. I’ve got 5 currently. But I really want to get some more information and see some pictures of the in patent ones. However I’m been warned that most collectors of them are rather reserved. Which is a shame. No one has replied to this thread so I’m assuming this is why. Was hoping to work out which George my padlock is, my WR one is easy as with VR etc...

    Hello Simon,

    The GR would signify George III or George IV, so it's actually a very early Barron's padlock. Is the key original? If so, you've got a good one there.

    What types of keys do you collect? Your display shows some really nice ones.

    From what I can tell the key is original. I have a WR marked padlock too and you can tell the key for that is later maybe Victorian. See photo attached to right.

    I collect all sorts of keys most interested in bizarre or unusual keys more than anything but I collect anything from kind of 18th century on - I’m not a fan of Roman / much older keys though.

    I’ve attached a selection of my file tray collection which happens to be filled with key, below I have about 14 trays in total with keys ranging from English, French, German, Spanish, Italian etc. I’m going to put another post together with some unusual ones.

    Thanks
