Anyone good with keys?
 
I feel like itís fairly old, it was dug in a park that was once a hospital late 1800s- early 1900s. Iíve tried looking but canít this particular key style. Any help? Age would be great.

On eBay I found they key in a set with a vintage brass padlock, but doesnít say anything about age.

It looks to be modern to me, mainly because the older ones typically had more ornate designs on them.

Looks 1950s or newer to me.

There's plenty of info about the history of the Russwin Lock Manufacturing company in Google. Although that company has been around for a very long time, I agree that the key is lacking ornate details and I think it's no more than 50 years old.
