For Sale By Licensed Amateur
Offered from my collection:

A rare, 1909 vintage brass Morse Key manufactured in the USA by:

Signal Electric Manufacturing Company, "Menominee Electric Co"., Michigan.

Model R-62 brass morse key.

Founded as Menominee Electric and Mechanical company, since 1904 was a
manufacturer of Telegraph instruments (prior to that electro-mechanical products
such as crank-telephone assemblies).

The R-62, R-63 and R-64 (differentiated by the size of the contacts) are
originally "Spark-era" keys (circa 1909) and were extremely popular with ship-
board radio-operators, looking for solid. reliable Telegraph Keys. The key
features brass parts and base and has silver contacts.

This particular model doesn't have the navy-type knob, so may have been a shore-
based operator's key - having a more traditional knob. It is currently mounted
on a hardwood base.

The manufacturer name can still be seen at the rear of the base and being brass
it is fairly easy to disassemble for cleaning - if desired, from time to time!


Thanks for looking and Stay Safe!
