This is fast becoming a favored area of collecting. Years ago
when I started collecting military padlocks I thought that there might be some
100 locks to collect. Today there are over 800 known varieties, and new ones
are still being discovered.
Beginning in 1959 the pentagon mandated that all padlocks for
all branches of the military be marked "US". This being said we are not able to
correctly designate all locks marked with "US". You will notice that we have
created a seperate category for these locks.

When the reverse of a case is not shown in a picture it is
assumed to be blank unless otherwise noted.
