Collector of Wilson Bohannan Locks

Wanted List

If you have a Wilson Bohannan (WB, W.Bohannan, etc.) padlock to sell or trade, the first thing you need to do is identify the lock.

Since I only collect the lever and warded padlock varieties (manufactured from 1860 through about 1930), there is no need to check my list for the more modern pin tumbler locks. A quick look at the keyway will tell you if it is a lever, warded, or pin tumbler variety. See the info boxes to the right for further explanations (not visible on devices with narrow screens).

Many times the model number is stamped into the front of the shackle, in some cases is is stamped on the lock body, or possibly not included at all. If you know the model number, please see if you can find it in the table below. Not finding the number in the table indicates that I already have that model in my collection (however if you have a lock which is in exceptional condition, please contact me anyway).

If you don't know the model number you can e-mail me a photograph of the lock, along with the measurement of the width of the lock (I do not need the height or thickness measurements to determine the model number).

Please contact me if you have one of the following locks to sell or trade.
