  1. I am pretty sure that RHC is Reading Hardware Company. They were actually owned by Dorma now, but I believe they stopped producing locks in the 50's or 60's. That is an awesome old lock, great find.

  2. Consider mixing a high concentration of alum and water to dissolve those screws out, it won't hurt the brass at all but will destroy anything ferrous. It may take a while though. Sort of the poor man's sinker EDM.
