    Default Some proper 'skeleton' keys

    Found these two bunches the other day, in varying sizes to pass various bridge ward locks, all are pretty drastically cut away.

    Some years ago as a youngster, I can recall in books of mystery and adventure reading of skeleton keys and wondering exactly what one might look like.

    The name certainly makes sense when you see them!

    It sure does Al, you see just about any old key being described as a skeleton key these days, so thought it'd make a change for all to see a few genuine antique ones.
