Whitinghams Patent Whitinghams Keys

Known as "Whittinghams Patent" although no patent has ever been found for it!!!!! It is a 9 lever dual control safe lock but has a double bitted "Master" key so that the head of the Bank could gain access with just his one key whereas the two cashiers needed a key each. It was made about 1880 before the system was brought in using a letter for the year followed by the number.
