The J-38-FR (French J-38?)

This is the key known as the "French J-38". You see that it has nothing in common with the other J-38's, except the name. In the view from the back (below) note the long trunnion adjusting screws and the shoulders on the binding post screws which prevent them from being screwed all the way down. In my other J-38-FR the binding post screws do NOT have the shoulders.

I have highlighted the words stamped into the bottom of the key with yellow chalk to make them visible. At the top is "J-38-FR" just above a white ink stamp of signal flags (like our Signal Corps acceptance stamp??) At the bottom is "Vuillemot" (the manufacturer??) and "Creteil" (a city in France).


This is a view of the bottom without the chalk highlighting of the words, and before cleaning the key.
