D&RGRR - Denver & Rio Grande Railroad Tapered Barrel Double Ring Switch Key
Item #: 5118 Denver & Rio Grande Railroad brass tapered switch keys are a hot collectible these days. This early 1890's brass key is stamped in serif letters “D&RGRR” on one side, and “298, S” on the reverse side. It has some wear on the top of all 3 "R"s from years of use, but all the stamped letters are very legible. This rare and old key is very worn. The double rings are worn and the end of the barrel is split and slightly bent. We would not try to use it, it is for "display" only. It measures 2” long and 7/8” wide at the hilt. If this key was in mint condition it would bring over $1,000.00+. You can not beat the price on this key, it is a must to add to your Colorado Railroadiana collection!
