Best Padlocks

This is one of the most popular areas of lock collecting, boasting over 3,000 different varieties. This area of collecting is popular today because of the dedication and research of Anthony John "AJ" Hoffman III. The majority of locks and research information that you will see in these pages are from AJ's personal collection. We thank Vivian Hoffman for sharing AJ's work with the lock collecting community.

The photographs and documentation of the AJ Hoffman collection are Copyright 2005 by Vivian Hoffman, and was produced by: Robert W. Dix, Bob Heilemann, Vivian Hoffman, Michelle M. Kaye, Gordon S. Morris, and Jackie F. Woldering.
