    WTK - Need some help identifying these flint lock (plates)

    I know these are some sort of reproduction made flintlock lock plates. They are complete. They were new and still sealed in the bag. I have taken the best pictures that I could with my phone camera. I tried different amounts of light so thats why the back ground looks different.

    They both are the same and have some stamped type engraving on the lock plate and hammer.

    There is no letters or numbers on them anywhere that I can find.

    Just want some information on them before I list them for sale. If anyone knows anything please PM me.

    Thanks

    Looks like CVA plates.

    Inside one of the sealed bags with one of the locks was a round sticker that says, "Made In Italy".

    Just another clue. Is CVA made in Italy?

    Could be CVA, Traditions, or Thompson Center. The dead give away that they are modern is the coil main spring.

    Oh, I know they are modern for sure. Guess they might be worth around $25 each? Or ?3

    From my feedback.
    I gather a good asking price for these is around $15- $20 each.
    I am going to put them on Ebay if no one here is interested in them.

    I got an email back from a gun parts company who sells them for $45 each, which is way too much to me.
