brass lever- 3" fraim lock- price 15.00
the padlock collector-second printing of the sixth ed.-1998
i'm sure your lock has appreciated somewhat in ten years, how much i wouldn't know
but it's a cool looking lock and display worthy reguardless of its value,nice find!

Nice lock and great job on cleaning it. Fraim locks were made in Lancaster, Pa and were considered some of the best of the time. They made locks for several railroads. They were used for just about everything that needed a lock. From strongboxes to jails.

Great find.
