Adam's Gunpowder Canister. Can you identify it?

Can you identify this gunpowder canister and lock. A date would be great. I don't know if this is a military container, or a civilian container. Any help would be greatly appreciated.




This is the lock that is on the container.

I wish I could help. I would like to see a photo of the key for the lock. That might help date it.

Muddy Valley. Message from Adam:
"Actually, there is no key to the lock! The way it works is that you move the "bar" in the middle to open it."
