Yesterday I received what I think is a 1938 model Mac Key. The label says it is Deluxe model with serial number 2153 but it has a black wrinkle finish. It does however have the circuit closer and thin dot stabilizer.
It does not appear to have been repainted!
Another thing strange about it is that the lever return spring pulls the lever from the right rather than pushing from the left. I've not seen that before. Perhaps this key is a later model than the 1938?
