What a nice pair of old brass keys! They are both stamped CNR in large letters on the bow, with a smaller letter P centered over the barrel. The CNR stands for Canadian National Railroad. We do not know the significance of the P.
On the reverse, the lighter more golden color key is stamped 224. The darker, browner key is stamped 27.
The bit cut is identical - a solid block of metal on each key. There are allover tiniest surface bumps and dings documenting use. There are a few light spots of surface discoloration, but NO bends or twists, and NO signs that these keys were ever abused trying to force a lock open.
SIZE is 2.75 inches long .
These keys may have been made for use in a coach door or a caboose. It is also possible they were cabinet door keys, we are not sure of their use, but they display wonderfully. A very nice addition to any collection of railway keys from Canada!
