    Default Any Locksmiths out there?

    I have a whole box of these that were given to my grandfather and then passed on to me. Are they worth anything? On the upper part there is a name stamped "Wilson Bohannan Co. Marion Ohio U.S.A. They are brass and I'm pretty sure they're old. Any clues? -sno

    According to http://www.padlocks.com/

    "Wilson Bohannan is the oldest family owned padlock company still producing padlocks in the United States."

    According to the "History" section of the site, the Company moved to Marion, Ohio in 1927. My guess is that your locks were made between 1927 and the 1940's.

    Sorry I couldn't be more precise...
