This lock will probably stay in my collection, a lot of locks come and go in trades but I think this one will stay. I see a few Francis Keil and Son's Lock Co. Locks on ebay, but I have yet to see another one of these. For how old it is and the security measures it has in the lock, its very cool.
Definitely keep it in your collection - but if you ever do want rid of it, give me...sorry, I mean all the guys on LP101...first refusal as you'll definitely get good bids.
Meanwhile, I imagine that combination would be difficult to pick. You'd need a deep hook...or I wonder whether a Falle type might be effective. Without an opportunity to try it myself, I suspect that the first stack with the slider/blocking disk would be even more difficult to deal with than a 'normal' zero-lift pin
