dual key lock

My question is, has anyone heard of a lock like this? I looked in the Lee valley hardware catalog and didn't find what I was looking for.

I don't want 2 different looking locking mechanisms. And I want it to look antique -ish, no "master locks"!

You can get a simple, brass-toned "modern" lock that might be OK. You can find them without logos or brand names on them, but the shape of the key and keyway will make it clear that it's a "real" lock.
Or, I searched for "antique cabinet lock keyed different" and found this and this. The "economy" one should be good enough - you only need two different keys, and I assume that you really aren't concerned about people picking the lock.
If picking the lock is a concern, then you should go with a modern style lock, maybe with an antique estucheon.

Today, it's about $110. Who knows where the exchange rate will go next?
That's only a little more than 100 bucks...right? That's not that bad for that kind of quality! And its actually exactly what I am looking for!
