    Help finding “standard” gun display box/money box/gun work box keys

    I would have thought as commonly used as these keys were they would be easy to find but I can’t find any spares for sell. I have at least 3 items I know of that uses this key: a beautiful handmade gun display case from the 80s. A $500 gun accessories/work box from one of the major retailers years ago and a money box from Walmart about 15-20 years ago. I’m down to this single key now . This key was apparently used only many “to keep an honest man out” locks of the 80s and 90s. I’d like to buy at least a couple if anyone knows where I can find them at. This key actually has a “71” on the backside but I don’t think that matters much. Any help locating any of thee for sell is appreciated. Thanks F7264165-CEF5-4EFE-9792-0161564CFF3A.jpeg

    I bought some skeleton keys for boxes on eBay a year or so ago. Lots of "standard" keys there.

    I’ve looked on eBay several times and through many pages. I can’t find this exact one. I found a couple close. Most are the much larger antique style for roll top desks and doors and such

    I don’t think this is a key one can have made. I believe it’s just a generic key made for latches.
