Renaissance Era Iron Key

A very nice key, although I suspect that it is mostly ornamental

Rare and very good quality iron key probably dating to the 16th century. The key is about 3.75 inches long and has an elongated bit with many teeth typical of older keys of Renaissance period. It is a bit rusty but in reasonable condition. - eBay
Amazingly this little rusy key sold for US $215.86 (GBP 143.00) plus 4 British pounds shipping.
