I went to a island that produced in the past to give it another go. The soil there always eats old copper coins to basically nothing so you basically have to pray for silver, gold or a solid relic. I did manage my best skeleton key to date and a nice escutcheon with a unusual shaped hole. Thanks for looking! 😁👍

That's a great looking key, congrats on the recovery.The key has a great bit profile so it was for a lock of substance and not a passage lock.
Love the look of the plate, that's awesome profile of what the key would of looked like.
