American P3 "Made in Italy"

I received 3 of these padlocks this week, keyed alike with 1 key.
Never seen anything like them before. It would be nice to find blanks so I can send 2 of the locks to fellow collectors.

Re: American P3 "Made in Italy"

Great find Jeff! I don't see many of those. I had a few P5's.... you can see it here.

It's a Yale keyway. You're looking for a Y52 (997E) blank. The top of the keyway
on your P3 looks SLIGHTLY taller than the P5... but I think it's what you need.

I also found that a KIEL blank I had worked too. It was stamped 6GC if that helps.
And an Abus1 (AB1) actually fits perfect too... except that's a 4-pin blank. So too short.

Re: American P3 "Made in Italy"

It's not Y52, I have those. It's much smaller, the keyway is only about .025"
Looking in the Ilco book I saw a 1041B that looks right.

Re: American P3 "Made in Italy"

Oh, ok. Didn't realize it's that much smaller.
Let us know if it turns out to be the 1041B.
Be good to know for future reference.

Those are interesting locks though. I've only seen a few different numbers.
But I wonder how many there are in that 'P' series. How many they made
and when they made them.
