    Looking for information on these keys. One has a larger than normal handle and is marked "4784" and the other folds back into itself.

    Thanks for any help!

      Lots of examples of folding keys online. The lower left picture..it appears to be a round mark, a few inches left of the handle? Is that a name or mark?

      Great keys..love old keys

      After looking at the other picture..maybe those are corrosion or assembly marks..

      Maybe jailhouse keys, not that I would know.

      The one key marked "4784" also has a number at the end marked "123". The shaft/barrel is hollow. A jailhouse key maybe. ???
