    Default info on a couple of locks

    I have a couple of locks that I have not been able to find out much about.
    One is a Union 6 lever DS4. I am assuming its from the 1950's ear . The second has no makers name and all all I have about it was it used by Shipwright who had served his time before the mast.
    Any back ground info would be gratefully received. Specifically age, origin, scarcity or rareness if there is such a word.

    Thanks for that the second one is still a bit of a mystery.

    Additional images of the split key. The key its self has no makings just like the lock so I am presuming its hand made. One feature it does have, is when the lock is open you cannot remove the key.
