This is an attractive key from the Reading Railroad. It is stamped RCO on one side of its bow. On the other side of its bow is stamped a single letter E or F (hard to tell which). Opposite that is what is left of a FRAIM banner or bow tie logo, most of which is worn away from "finger polish" over years of use.
RCO is an alternative to RDGCO, another mark the company used.
Condition is extremely nice with an attractive color and patina. The bit edges and barrel end are nicely rounded from service.
If you look hard you will find a tiny impression on the end of the barrel where the bit comes off. This appears to be a mold flaw, the way it was made at the factory and is inconsequential.
