Coes Key Model. Based on Loring Coes' 10/20/03 patent with a retaining nut at the base of the adjusting screw and sliding wedge lock. Coes made the key model in four sizes from 28" to 72", but this one is only 5-1/2" long. It's steel rather than brass, and not marked by Hilary Klein or any of the other miniaturists. The only markings are the patent date (very faint), and "Made in USA." Possibly a salesman's sample. Very clean and works smoothly. From the collection of Cecil Holmes.
