I got this straight key as part of a package deal with some other gear. It has no markings of any kind, and I'm wondering what kind of key it is - who made it. Photos are here:

Any insights appreciated,

That's a Nye-Viking key.

Yeah, I'm sure.

Its contacts are enclosed and hidden so you can't see them (they're inside the base); otherwise, it's just a regular hand key.

Bingo.

A Nye Viking Master Key, Model 330-001, now discontinued:

It has quite a nice feel.

Thanks a lot Steve.
