    Whenever I find keys I keep them, occasionally I buy a jars at estate sales, sometimes just find them on the ground. Some of the ones I set aside are a P&F Corbin key from Topeka cutlery shop, some old Model T Fords, and older Master padlock keys. The SO&G I found at work, Shamrock Oil and Gas, the refinery was built in the '30s I'm sure the key isn't that old. Through a Merger became Diamond Shamrock, now it is Valero. Wasn't able to find much information on Topeka cutlery shop but the key looks pretty old.

      I love old keys too..that Master lock key with the Lion...I had a 1970 chevelle that I installed hood pins on. I replaced one pin with a master lock that had the Lion motif on it. Bought it at an Ace Hardware store. Drove for a few years with it on..then someone stopped me in the parking lot and offered me some stupid price for it...I sold it right there.

      I believe I have an old brass Master with the lion on the key, I'll have to see if I can find it. Sometimes wish you could put more than 4 pictures on the posts.

      I bet I've got some of the lionhead MASTER keys in my big boxful (recently shown) but would have to go digging to be sure -- I know there's an antique FORD one or two like yours in there!

      The question marks were supposed to be Piano Keys
      But the Keystone Cops don’t allow emoji’s

      I have piano keys too, and organ keys, and all sorts of every other kinda keys we can think of, probably . . . just one more of the 'afflictions' that is my 'collections'. . . ??

      I have some skeleton keys and a locking mechanism with knobs on I will post. I also separated the little keys that may unlock some of my piggy banks that I don't have keys for. Not sure if they would be worth posting but I may think about it.

      Also should mention that the bail seal jar is only Master padlock keys.
