1955 10F/7741 Type F Bathtub Military Morse Key New Old Stock In Original Packaging

This is an iconic 1955 10F/7741 Type F Bathtub Military Morse Key New Old Stock  in it's original unopened packaging.

As the packaging is sealed, the photos of the key is not of the actual key you will receive but of another key we have recently sold. We are assuming that the key is in 'as new' condition as it has never been used.

The packaging itself is intact, with discolouration and slight damage to its brown paper wrapper and outer clear plastic wrapper. There are three labels on the packaging, one of which states that it is a 10F 7741 Key Morse Type F and another that it was packaged in December 1955.

Material: Bakelite case
Approximate Key Dimensions (WHD): 13.5 x 7 x 4 cm

As used in RAF Lancaster, Halifax and Wellington Bombers, in conjunction with the T1154 Radio, during WWII: see photo. It is commonly known as the bathtub as it is shaped like an old fashioned British 'bathtub!'

A clip holds the bathtub key cover closed and can also be extended to depress the edge of the knob so that a signal can be sent continuously in the event of an emergency. The fact that the key is totally enclosed meant it could also be used in a flameproof environment.

A great find for all collectors of military keys or radio communication aficionados!
