    Default What are these Keys??? from Volgograd Digging

    Hi, here are some keys found by my friend in Volgograd he sent me as a present. I do not know exact location, or locations if more than one, that these keys were found.

    What are these for? Are they German or Russian? Maybe a quartermasters keys? Vehicle keys?

    Any ideas??

    I see ordinary lock keys as used for late 19 th century front and ordinary house doors. Some 19 th cent.cupboard keys , one key that could be used for an engine and one safe key.
    Always looking for Belgian Congo stuff!

    Hi Stuka, OK, thanks for looking. I thought maybe the keys to the whole German or Red Army!!

    None of these keys are WW2 military related?

    I mean they will never be classified as "militaria" even if they where made to open the door of a closet at the Führerbunker....

    OK Kris, I see your point now. I will try to find out where there were found that might give an idea who might have used them.

    Which one is the engine and safe key?

    the flat one's on the second an 3th groupe are engine key's to me.
    The flat one on the 4 th groupe is a padlock key.
    And the last (biggest key) on the last groupe is a safe key.
