Got a couple of Brass Railroad Keys this weekend.
The key on the left has FRR V on the front and S 322 on the back.
The other has CRRR on the front and S on the back.
Both made by W. Bohannan Brooklyn NY.
The CRRR I have found it might be Copper River RR or Crystal River RR, found nothing on the FRR one.
Also, I learned ebay won't let you auction them, some anti-terroism law?
Is that true, can they be sold at all? Any Railroad guys out there that can help me?
Any help is appreciated

    thanks for the link, in goggling i found frisco keys would have either been spelled out FRISCO or would have been STL SF RR St louis San Francisco.
    Thanks for the help Ill keep searching.
