This lock does not have the traditional clasp locking bar. The rounded key tip rotates a cam that pushes the locking bolt.   See Mechanicals
Observations:
1) There is 1 bolt.
2) There is 1 notch in shackle (the thing that looks like a notch on the heel side is actually the beginning of a clearance cut that goes almost to the bottom of the shackle to clear the Shackle Retaining Pin for its range of motion).
3) There is a compression spring at the heel end of the bolt.
4) The heel of the shackle is retained in the lock body by a sharp 90 degree bend at the tip of the shackle.
5) There is a compression spring at the end of the shackle.
6) The wards are made up of a stack of 0.032 thick discs 
This lock has an offset keyway. Some locks have a blank reverse.
This lock does not appear in any WB catalog that we have.
