This key would be a highlight in any good collection of New England railway locks and keys. It is extremely well marked and in superb condition. Best of all is its rare, very old maker. It is difficult to find a key this old with all those things going for it as well as this one has.
This is a Boston & Maine Railroad brass switch key. On one side it is stamped B&MRR. On the other it is beautifully stamped SHERBURNE & CO. / BOSTON MASS.
The color has deepened to a warm chestnut-brass with a fine patina. There is some wear but not much, and it displays beautifully with a serious curve to the bit.
