Winchester Padlocks - Fantasies and Reproductions

Fantasy padlocks are designs that were never originally made for the Winchester Co.
Reproductions are copies of the original designs made for the Winchester Co. You can easily see the differences in a side-by-side comparison. The only reproduction that I know of is the "SIX LEVER" #632, the rest are all fantasy.

You will want to visit Fantasy and Reproduction Padlocks for further illustrations.

This is not a complete list. Others will be added as they become available.
