    Navy searchlight key. Made for mounting outdoors. Used for visual signaling. Originally waterproof but "boot" is gone.

    I have one. I didn't know the history just that it is a Brelco Navy key.

    Billions and billions. It was very useful to be able to use Morse Code in those days. No one thought twice about learning it or
    complained that they didn't like the software available. Billions of Morse Code learners: commercial ops, military ops, Boy Scouts,
    Girl Scouts, etc. Even more billions of keys.

    Billions!
