When I looked at the nickels I was astonished at the number of them which were solid silver, probly'

Hi everyone,
reference to the Coventry auction last week, is the person on here who sold lot 128 a Mills QT chevron machine? Just a longshot, as it came with no keys which I knew, but was wondering if they have turned up anywhere as I would like to have kept the genuine Mills lock. Just grasping at straws but if you don't ask! Just send me a personal message if you can help, thanks.

Try not to drill the lock, a new one will cost you £200 plus (if you can find one).

I'm assuming its not the usual Mills lock with the snake key? They are only about £65.

They have a snake key but are totally different to the usual Mills locks. I will see if this picture uploads! The lock's open so it's no big issue to get it rekeyed, it's just that I'm fussy and want a Mills key not a shiny steel one!

If hes still going(i think he is but was never easy to access) mr slot in the usa was cutting mills keys on original blanks a few years ago(i sent the lock to him) but couldnt say if hes still able to do that,

I wasnt at coventry but the front mills lock sold there looked a lot like the type your after,went i think for £60

The CAM Automatics 'flasher' lot 107 (The Tankard) was a snip!
