So the next question Ray would be....

Are you selling them and if so, how much each and in bulk?  ;)

are 21B keys readily available or not so much? I think I have two or three 21B keys here somewhere.

They run around $20 plus shipping on eBay when they do show up. Here are the current listings for these keys. I paid about that for a 21B key about 2 years ago so the price is stable, somewhat.

They are from the Paul Vaerchack estate,he was a lock collector that's where the wood crates came from also. I believe those are the bad ones aren't they Ray? I remember seeing them on one of my visits. I also got a bunch of broken ones from him.

Hey James;

some of them are bad, but most are good. He always HATED 21B locks for some reason, so he'd make me buy some whenever I visited. I remember once he brought out a 5-gallon bucket about 3/4 full of em for me! How could I resist! They're like single-slots; sooner or later, they will be in NEED! ;-)

In the last 2 yrs or so of his life, he started "pushing" a lot of stuff off on Gene and I for WAY low prices (sometimes free).

These are the only locks that will fit in a A/E vault with the right modification to the key. Jim
