Oliver Winchester, Pauly Jail, Central & Union Pacific Railroad (C&UPRR)
I believe the Pauly Jail and Central & Union Pacific Railroad Locks are both Chemically Etched. The Oliver Winchester Repeating Arms Lock looks to be cast iron. Will add dimensions when I get the complete facts. I think the Pauly and C&UPRR Lock are about 9 inches tall. The Winchester..I believe is almost 14 inches tall.
PAULY JAIL "FANTASY" PADLOCK
Approx. 9 inches tall

More Information will be added later. I will try and get an exact date when
these hit the market.--circa 1978
Central & Pacific Union
Approx. 9 inches tall.--More pictures when they become available.
Please contact me if you think additional clarification needs to be added. If someone has a better scan than these FANTASIES I would welcome their pictures. I would also like additional pictures of these locks made in this series. This page is not meant to offend the unsuspecting seller who buys a FANTASY LOCK unknowingly and then resells it. This page will hopefully educate both buyers and sellers and help eliminate new collectors/dealers getting stung--sometimes for BIG BUCKS..... Most Dealers are honest but I think when they try and sell ANY Fantasy or Reproduction Lock using a "PRIVATE" auction... That really tells a story...they KNOW EXACTLY what the lock is and probably where it came from. It's even MORE suspicious when NO OTHER AUCTIONS of THEIRS are 'PRIVATE' auctions.....I would think THOSE auctions border on Fraud and I would hope EBAY would monitor them and take appropriate action.
