    Looking for a good home for this old keyer. It is used and in very good condition for its age, although it does have signs of use. The contacts could use cleaning but it all works and is complete. Free shipping to the continental USA. $110.00 via certified check or PayPal. Contact me at

    According to the Vibroplex collectors site, and the listing for SN = date of manufacture -
    The serial number on your Lightning Bug Key represents a DOM first quarter of 1946 -
    Your key is in extremely fine condition...
    This date of manufacture may be a big bonus for a buyer.
    SN 148,170 thru 152,526 were made in 1946

    Thank You for that information. I knew it was quite old, and that puts the unit at 72 years old. I have had a few of these over the years, but this one I got from a friend. Just want to find a good home for it.
