A bit more info... I need to clean my up and look for the maker's mark.

An identical warded padlock is illustrated in the 1895 Montgomery Ward & Co. catalog. At that time it retailed for 12, or $1.25/doz. A lock of the same design, but with a maker-marked shackle, is listed in Arnall's book, The Padlock Collector. Attributed to the Slaymaker-Barry Co. (c. 1888-1900), it is valued at $15 in Very Good condition.
