I suppose it is conceivable both units were manufactured close in time to each other. Did you buy them from the same source at (or nearly) the same time?

On a semi-related tangent, I had purchased a Master padlock for a storage unit from my local home improvement store a couple years ago. A couple weeks later, we realized we needed a second storage unit, so back to the same store to buy another padlock. It was a few weeks later when I thought I had grabbed the wrong key before I realized both locks were keyed exactly the same.

useful in your case, but a bit worrying if it holds true for values of n greater than 2. is it possible that these padlocks are missing the pins, such that any key that will fit in the slot will unlock it? this seems more likely to me than two randomly selected locks being keyed the same.
