They key is a "key" itself :). Back in the days such keys were used for additional security. The idea behind it is to put it inside of the keyhole from the side of your "home". Then you lock the key and the front brass part of the key remained on the inside of the lock. Its making a double key, very hard to break. Its a tiny mechanical wonder for its time :). The key is marked Nikon and on the other side it has a trademark initial. Additional Info.Skeleton keyFrom Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaFor other uses, see Skeleton Key (disambiguation).A padlock skeleton key that can open any lock with this keyhole (right), compared to a normal key that can open only the lock for which it was made (left).A skeleton key (also known as a passkey) is a type of master key in which the serrated edge has been filed down so that it can open numerous locks,[1] most commonly the warded lock. The term derives from the fact that the key has been reduced to its essential parts.[1]In a broader sense the term can be used synonymously with master key to refer to any key, keycard or other device capable of opening a variety of locks.In US English usage, 'skeleton key' is also occasionally used to mean a standard lever lock key[citation needed]. It is sometimes misapplied to refer to any antique key. Source:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skeleton_key History of locks and keys[edit]Ancient keys[edit]Anglo-Viking voided key (c. 900 AD)Medieval lock in KathmanduThe earliest known lock and key device was discovered in the ruins of Nineveh, the capital of ancient Assyria.[1] Locks such as this were later developed into the Egyptian wooden pin lock, which consisted of a bolt, door fixture, and key. When the key was inserted, pins within the fixture were lifted out drilled holes within the bolt, allowing it to move. When the key was removed, the pins fell part-way into the bolt, preventing movement.[2]The warded lock was also present from antiquity and remains the most recognizable lock and key design in the Western world. The first all-metal locks appeared between the years 870 and 900, and are attributed to the English craftsmen.[3] It is also said that the key was invented by Theodore of Samos in the 6th century BC.[4]Affluent Romans often kept their valuables in secure boxes within their households, and wore the keys as rings on their fingers. The practice had two benefits: It kept the key handy at all times, while signaling that the wearer was wealthy and important enough to have money and jewelry worth securing.[5]Source:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Key_(lock) Size: You can see the measurements on the pictures.
