      Wow super Bob, my P-500 has a black base, have seen a number with
      gray base also, guess different years perhaps. Label looks really great.
      Did you get those made someplace?
      I have a Martin/Bunnell Flash key, the original type design with just a
      post
      for the lever to pivot on and not a "bridge" or trunion, its has a hand
      written
      serial on the bottom 300 something, appears to never had a label, would
      like to have a label made for it one day. Have a picture or two of labels
      from like keys.

      I sold my collection some years back, in fact about 12 years back, and
      just
      have a few keys that I use and like to keep around. Have a McElroy that has
      someones name cast into the side of the base from the factory, have not
      been
      able to determine why or who the guy was to have that done.
      I really like to restore old junkers, and try to take them back to original.
      Thanks very much Bob appreciate this.
