Help ID’ing this key/insignia

Post by Hornsurgeon » 23 Feb 2019 15:53

Anybody have any ideas on this key or insignia? It looks German to me. Key measures about 2”x3”

At first I thought it was a “Motobecane” logo, but not sure. Maybe an older version.
Any machines or fuse boxes or other electrical installation boxes near the keys location?

It was found at an antique store, they tried tell me it was a cuckoo clock key, but I knew better. Someone had mentioned possibly for leg irons.

Could well be for a clock cabinet or similar cabinets/enclosures. I use a very similar one at work and don’t think it’s WW2 or leg irons related. German, possibly.
