    Default Key identification

    Hello,
    I was wondering if anyone could help me identify this key.
    It's 5 inches long, the bow is 1.75 inches wide, and the bit has a diameter
    of 0.5 inches. No markings except for the number 2 on the bow.
    Please refer to the photo's. Thanks for your time and knowledge.
    Don

    Linus Yale Sr. Quadruplex key, patented 1844? It seems to have been a fairly popular lock in the mid 1800's. My first experience with one was on a Stearnes and Marvin safe with no key. So I made one for it. The key has some value but not sure what they go for today.
