Very Good/Excellent vintage condition with just minor -to- moderate overall cosmetic wear throughout but NO breaks or repairs. Key is NOT original (clearly) but works perfectly, popping the shackle open with strong spring-action. Closes/locks in place with a crisp click. Entire lock is adorned with absolutely fantastic, rich patina (including the remnants of some old, faded red paint) throughout. See pics.
Measures 3-1/4" tall (when shackle is in fully locked position) x 2-7/16" wide (at widest) x 45/64" thick/deep (overall, including skull protrusion). Weighs 5.8 oz..
