    I'm absolutely *certain* this is nowhere near the total number of similar such openers I actually own, just a handful that was convenient to collect for pics here, now....? ;-) <lol>

    They're all made of stamped/plated steel with assorted rusty spots/etc to show their age, forxactly how old that might be for any one of 'em I don't know. Suggestions/clues are WELCOMED, should any of y'all be able to shed further light on any one or the other?!! :-) :-)

    [1st 2 pics show their topsides, 2nd 2 pics show the undersides but rotated 90 degrees, the rest of this description based on the topside pics]

    The five in the center are all beer brands: MEISTER BRAU, TIVOLI, PABST BLUE RIBBON, CARLING'S RED CAP ALE, and SCHLITZ.

    Surrounding them [starting on RH side, clockwise] are a nifty CANADA DRY bottle (only) opener, KESSLER'S BLENDED WHISKY with attached small corkscrew, STIHL ENGINE OIL (this one obviously probably intended to open a container full of an entirely different sort of liquid) and a likely common COCA-COLA bottle opener.

    The PBR is the largest at ~4-3/4" long...the KESSLER'S the smallest at ~3".

      AnythingObscure, Cool.

      I have a couple of vintage family church keys myself.

      CW user fortapache has one like your 'Have a Coke" opener:

      I just found one in the junk drawer that I have never seen and don't know what one side of it is for. I never thought of posting it here but I will. Maybe someone has seen the same. This one has hook type things on the back side of it.
