We can date this very nice skeleton style key to between 1914 and 1935, the time period when the New York Central referred to itself as the New York Central Lines. This is a door key from either a caboose or a passenger coach.
Stamped NYCL on one side of its bow, it is stamped ADLAKE on the other. It is just under 4 inches long, and has a solid shaft.
It is in extremely nice condition, with no bends or twists. The color and patina are terrific with some slight surface discoloration that adds character. The slightly rounded edges of the bit document use.
There are several versions of New York Central skeleton keys and this would be a fine addition to any railway lock and key collection.
