    Default Ratner alphabet combination lock

    Anyone seen one of these Com locks before, it is an alphabet combination and on the dial it says Ratner but cant see any serial numbers on it. Anyone have any details on the lock or any paperwork associated about it

    Jason,

    Nothing on this lock only on the ones attached. This one with the 'T' knob was fitted to a Ratner Grade 7 1925 vintage in my museum at Tanns.

    Timothy, that double LL on the dial would indicate possible Spanish manufacture.
