Handsome, vintage, commercial-grade lockset made by, "Falcon Lock Co." sometime during the 1960's or 70's. It consists of 2 knobs, 2 stamped escutcheons, 1 mortise cylinder w/anti-theft collar & 4 keys, 1 mortise lock, 1 strike plate, 2 square rods to connect the knobs to the lock, 2 screws to connect the knobs and escutcheons to each other, 2 screws to connect the thin, rectangular, vanity plate to the lock faceplate, and 3 screws to fasten the lock and interior escutcheon to the door. This set comes with all of the parts and pieces that you'll need to install it. The lock is reversible and could accommodate the swing of any door.
The set was salvaged from a government building in Northern Colorado. Even the keys have the inscription, "U.S. GOV'T DO NOT DUPLICATE" The building was renovated and all of the old, original doors were replaced with new ones. Since it's cheaper to buy new hardware that fits the new doors, rather than modifying the doors to fit the old locksets; the locksets were removed. Their loss is now your opportunity! This set was good enough to secure the door in a government building, so it's certainly up to the challenge to protect your home or office.
The set was used for a few decades and accumulated a few nicks and scratches over the years. There are a few spots and streaks of paint that add to its distressed look. The knobs also have a couple of shallow dents (see photos). However, these are just "character marks" that distinguish it from similar-looking, new hardware. There are no breaks, cracks, gouges, or any serious flaws.
The lock was opened inspected and we sprayed machine oil on and around all internal parts to facilitate their movement.
Although you could still buy "Falcon" locksets today, this particular model has long been discontinued. The newer models have only have handles or levers, no knobs. The starting price for one of these sets is about twice what we're asking for this set. Don't miss out on this opportunity!
