    I purchased this key in March 2012. It has seen very little use. Exposed brass components have tarnished. Contacts are fine. Carbon fiber finger pieces. I recently spoke with Tony, N3ZN at Dayton. He no longer makes the brass base keys because of the ongoing challenge of keeping them from tarnishing. He did offer me to send it back to him and he will powder coat the brass for $75 excluding shipping. I have been using a touch paddle for years now and while this is a beautiful key (when polished), it is excess to my needs. Original cost was $400 including shipping and the extra set of finger pieces. I am sure Tony can make you a new call sign tag for the top. The key cleans up nicely with Brasso--it just becomes a labor of love to keep it looking bright and shiny. Tony's keys are second to none. Just check his reviews on

    Note, this model is no longer made. Closest key on his website is the ZN9-DX which appears to be limited production at $375, not including shipping or second set of finger pieces.

    This key is heavy and I will look to ship via USPS Priority Flat Rate Box. I can also provide more photos and even get out the Brasso to show you what can be done to shine it up.

    PayPal OK. I'm good on Asking $300 OBO and I pay shipping.
