Handsome, antique flushbolt set salvaged from Southeastern Illinois.

Except for the rod and screws, all parts are made of solid, heavy, thick, cast brass and are plated with a thick coating of nickel.
If you are not familiar with this type of hardware, it's the locking mechanism installed on one of the doors in a pair of double doors, for the purpose of keeping one door stationary, while allowing the other to swing freely. The last photo in this auction gives you an example of how these look once installed.
The activator plate (with the lever or switch) installs on the interior side lock stile, the guide plate (with square hole on one end) installs on the top corner of the door, and the receiver plate (with square hole in the middle) installs on the top board of the the jamb/frame.
We recently acquired a box filled with, "New Old Stock," hardware from an old, hardware store that closed down in Chicago, IL. The pieces within the box were made decades ago but were never sold and installed. They just sat on a shelf or in the stock room until the store closed down. As a result, all parts are like new. They do have nicks and scratches from being handled and shuffled around in a box for decades, but no issues that would result from prolonged use like breaks, cracks, dents, weak springs, etc. The springs behind the levers are strong, and won't allow gravity or a bump to retract the bolt once it's extended. All parts are strong and ready for another lifetime of service.
