The All White Metal Type J-38

The All White Metal type is easily identified by having no brass metal parts. (This key is missing the nut that holds the anvil and anvil strap to the frame.)

In this photo you can see that the eye screw on this key is unusually small.


Here I show an eye screw from an ARH type key for contrast. The outer diameter of the larger eye is 3/8", while the smaller is 5/16".

I have found two all white metal J-38's in the boxes as shown here. It is very unusual to find J-38's in boxes from these two companies. These two keys have a regular size eye screw.

Here is an All White key without the J-38 engraved at the front of the base. This might be a rare variation, or it might be someone was very skillful in removing the engraveing without leaving any traces.
