We don’t get many locks from Post & Co. in Cincinnati in New England. This lock is clearly a "S"witch made for a B&P RR. I think it is from the Baltimore & Potomac (Pennsylvania Railroad predecessor) but it could be one of many other B&P lines that existed in the 1800s: Boston & Providence, Bangor & Piscataquis, etc. It takes a fat key with a dog-leg. The dust cover is not working. It has several links of hand forged chain attached. It has a ding on one side. It is heavy and measures 2 1/2" across.


Good - ding on one side
