Having dismantled the lock it looks like it would'nt be too difficult to make a key, but I would prefer the real thing if there is one spare.
I needed a couple of keys for a Lock 39 that I have (somewhere) and I took it to a 'Master Locksmith' and had a couple of keys produced for £15 from memory. Same locksmiths have 'picked' the locks on several payphones I have taken in over the years - been about £20 for 'picking' and producing a new key. A lot cheaper than buying a new lock. If I can find the box of locks I've got I'll see what the lock number is. It is one of the reasons that I try to fit the earlier less secure 'Lock No 31' all of which use the same key - Key J - but I have found variants of the key.
