    Default Can anyone identify this type of key..?

    Hi..I'm new member konasky. I'm hoping you gentlemen can help me identify this key (See attached photo..) I bought it several years ago from a lady online. When I asked if she knew anything about the key's history, she told me she had recently moved into a largeish house, which apparently had previously been a home for retired vicars... and had found the key in a leaky, dilapidated old shed in the garden there. ( So it's possibly a type of church door key..?) It was very heavily encrusted with rust amongst other things..and took quite a while to carefully clean up enough to display in my collection...although you can see how heavily pitted it had become. I have been collecting old keys for some years now..but have yet to come across another key that looks remotely like it..so any information/suggestions at all from anyone as to it's age/type/origins etc..would be most welcome indeed ...cheers and good hunting9k. k.

    Hello konasky, not sure what went wrong with your photos, it might be you need to resize them smaller if they are excessively large
