Antique Skeleton Key Marked "?B4" ~ Old, Used, Tarnished, Silver Metal

Up for auction I have one antique skeleton key, pictured.

Measures: 7cm long x 2.2cm wide (almost 3" long x 1" wide)

Marked/stamped with an unknown (worn) symbol, and then "B4" at the top of one side (see photos). Blank on reverse side.

Solid silver metal with some tarnishing, heavily used.

Appears to be steel, but I am not 100% sure.

This was found in the false bottom of my grandfather's tackle box. He was a building manager for GE (General Electric) in Schenectady, NY, for many years and retired from there. He always had a bunch of keys and a bunch of wild stories to go with them, lol.

    Hello Friend! Thank you, I hope you are well? Skeleton keys are pretty neat.. like you said, so many things can be done with them from using them in art and decor, to tying a leather cord on and simply wearing as a pendant. I just think it's fun to look at them and wonder what they were used for. Oh my, all the possibilities, lol! :)
