I acquired this from FB marketplace recently for $100. I’ve wanted one for only about 28 years. I was astounded when I got it to see the original key with it.

The lid did not close because the lock halves don’t mate because a hinge support is broken.

The repair went well. I could not resist sanding the back panel to expose the pine carcass. And measured the growth rings. About .040 for a pair of winter/summer.

Works like a charm. This type of lock was used on chests that are over 150 years old. I’m thinking this could be that old. I’m still astonished the key was not lost.
