For sale is this 10k solid gold key that is a mystery of sorts. I've done considerable research and cannot find any information about a Beta Kappa Nu Fraternity, but there is information regarding the Blue Key National Honor Society. As for the owner of the charm, the name J.P. Thornton reveals an author from the 20th century (pin is marked '60). The piece weighs 2.6 grams and is in excellent condition.
