Shipping Time Notice: Most orders shipped quickly, but please allow 3-4 days handing and 2-4 days for delivery, excluding holidays and weekends. I am sometimes required to be away for about week for work -- so some orders "may" take up to 12 days to deliver. I often travel in October and February to buy keys, so there may be delays during those periods. Please contact me in advance of bidding if a time delay is an issue. Thank you!


I also buy antique keys and sell on consignment!

When buying multiple items, please do not pay individually, but allow me to forward a revised invoice so I can combine shipping.

Condition: (Read before bidding): As always (unless otherwise noted in the description), used keys may have varying degrees of antiquating, including rust, slight bends, tarnish, pitting, bent or missing teeth, small or micro cracks, etc. Set collections may include: antique, vintage, modern, brass, steel, reproductions and rare selections. Keys listed as "brass" are assumed to be brass, but some could be other nonmagnetic material or plated metals. All dating of keys is estimated since keys can be reproduced at any time. Key sets packed together unless otherwise requested. Thank you!

100% Satisfaction Guarantee! If you do not like your purchase, or if you have any issues after receiving, contact me right away and I will make it right or refund your money!

About this unique collection or key(s): I hand-pick my keys from a massive private collection. Keys may have originated from: Baroque (1600's – 1750's), Age of Enlightenment (1700's), Napoleonic (1799-1815), Georgian (1714-1830), Victorian (1837-1901), Romantic (1850-1920's), Machine (1900-1945) or Modern / Vintage Eras (1930's - present). In general, when applied to keys, the word "Antique" means a key believed to or known to have been made in the 1940's or earlier. Very few keys from the pre-19th Century period have makers marks to accurately date or place a specific key. In some circumstances, a key can be dated by very unique designs or cuts. As always, copies (reproductions or duplicates) of keys were often made many years after the original, only complicating accurate dating, authenticity and appraisals. Please note that vintage and antique keys were often modified. Bows and shafts were often interchanged as keys were damaged or locks progressed with time. This is a common practice and does not always effect collection value. "Reproduction" or "decorative" keys have been made since keys were invented. Reproduction keys are still "keys" and can be valuable and highly collectible. I do not maintain historical data concerning specific keys unless otherwise noted in the description.

Key length sizes are sometimes rounded off to the nearest 1/16 to 1/8 inches. All keys from a smoke free environment. Only key(s) shown in auction are included. Keys are generally not cleaned to maintain antique nature, but preservation approved, light oil may be applied to prevent rusting. Patinas on some keys may be aged surface oxidation and will rub off or wash off.

I also purchase keys!

Payment Terms: All payments due within 4 days. Thank you!


US Shipping

I can only ship to your current PayPal account address. Please remember that the United States Postal Service set rates and controls shipping delays, not me! I do not charge handling fees!

Unless otherwise noted, all packages sent via USPS priority mail using eBay's shipping calculator. Shipping includes free delivery confirmation and loss protection via PayPal Protection. Note possible shipping delay notes at the top of this page.

Canada and International Shipping: (If available with this auction). Important notice: The USPS has recently raised International shipping rates to astronomical levels. As of June, 2013, the USPS now charges $23.95 to ship a 1-2 lb. Priority flat rate box to Australia or Japan and $19.95 to Canada. These are USPS rates not mine! I do not charge any extra handling fees for orders outside the US. For items valued over $60.00 the buyer will need to contact me in advance for shipping charges, as I can only ship such items via federal Express, which is very expensive. I cannot ship by lessor means due to PayPal and eBay tracking / loss coverage requirements. Please contact me to open up closed location item(s). Multiple International items purchased at the same time can be combined if the value does not exceed weight limits, or additional postage may be required. In some instances, International shipping may not be available after purchase due to changes in postage, location restrictions, labor or political issues, weather, or other unforeseen issues. In such events I will refund your payment 100%, and the buyer agrees to hold me harmless.


Other Terms:

Rail∼road keys and other prohibited keys / items: Due to Homeland Security and other concerns, I do not knowingly sell rail∼road keys or other keys used for transportation, government or secure (unauthorized) locks.

Clock and general key fitting and sizing
I do not suggest purchasing any key as a replacement unless you know the key will fit. The problem with older keys and locks is that the mechanisms and keys often change due to wear. In addition, key measurements can vary greatly due to small differences in bit cuts, depth, shaft diameter and sizing due to metric vs. US standards. Our square end keys, including clock keys are sized by metric standards. Although I accept returns, the cost of returning a key purchased on size speculation is generally not worth the cost. I suggest consulting a locksmith to confirm lock / key fitting. For additional clock sizing instructions please visit our special key sizing page.

Refunds:
I will gladly refund any purchase if you are not 100% happy. Contact me first and I will be happy to assist you with any problem. Please note that all returns must be postmarked within 14 days, include all items, be packed in equal protection as received and be tracked/insured (to prevent loss). Refund will be issued upon safe return of item(s) to seller. Please note return processing may be delayed due to my work schedule as noted at the top of this listing. Buyer is responsible for return postage costs. Items purchased for temporary use, including photography will not be refunded.

Packing:
Groups or sets of keys are generally shipped together in a tightly wrapped plastic bag. It has been our experience that keys are not seriously damaged when packed as a tight group. Valuable keys or single keys are usually packed individually. Special packing is available upon request, but large groups of common keys cannot be packed individually due to time restraints and postal box size and weight limits.

Feedback: Please remember shipping delays, shipping costs and other issues are generally beyond our control. Although I try to inspect every key, some may have defects I honestly missed. In such cases I will refund your payment and pay for return shipping. Please remember this when leaving feedback. I will be happy to correct any issue.

Copyright: All pictures are Copyrighted. Do not copy. All images watermarked.

Display Items: Non-key items used in pictures for display, backgrounds and measurements not included or available for sale unless otherwise noted in the description. Keys shown in seller's logo are not included.

Remember..........BID SOON! Last minute bidders often loose out!!!

Thank you.
