1920 #4 Blue Racer after restoration
I purchased this key off of Ebay and the seller advertised it as a Deluxe Model with a nickel plated base. After getting the key I soon discovered that it wasn't a nickel plated base but a black base with gold pin striping. The black paint was nearly gone showing the shiny base below. After disassembling the key it was quite apparent finding the gold pin stripes. It was in need of new feet. I had new feet and repainted this key in the black base with gold pin stripes and filigrees. The nickel plating was badly pitted so I replated all of the parts to get them back to new again.
