Default Hoover Keymatic Key FoC

This is a key for a 1960s Hoover Keymatic washing machine like this:
https://museum.wales/collections/onl...shing-machine/

It's in one piece but a bit weather beaten and has lost most of the text from the sides.

FoC collected or posted at cost.

Interesting that it seems to be a single moulding. ISTR the one my Mum had was made from several mouldings, riveted tothether, and that the different plastic pieces were black and white. But we are talking about when I was a child!

EDIT: yes it seems there are several versions. This is the one I remember:

I remember that black and white key.

When the washer packed up I got the key and socket, with the intention of building something clever with it.

Like most of the junk I've had great intentions for over the last 50 years, nothing ever came of it.

Cheers,

Buzby
