    Default Warded long key with dust cover

    I don't have that much info on this one, only that we have had it for a couple of years now. It is slighly longer than the usual warded safe key, which is what attracted us to it in the first place. We're not even sure if it is a safe key, but have filed it in that general area for lack of other info. The dust cover was rusted over when first purchased - but with a bit of coaxing and some WD40 it came loose - much to our pleasure. It measures 16.4cm long (or just under 6.5 inches).

    Default Farmer Kemp & Farmer ?

    Remove the bung and look down the drill pin pipe with a good light, if you see raised steps a bit like the sketch then it will be a Farmer Kemp and Farmer key. The lock combined telescoping concentric tubes with Barron's patent.
