The largest skeleton key I ever found anywhere! What do you think - castle, jail, or pirate's chest?

This is the second skeleton key that I ever found anywhere. It was at a antique mall in Lancaster County. I could not resist purchasing it.
It is just huge and made of iron. I see people finding them in the fields on videos, but the only other skeleton key I ever found, was a nice pewter one with the number 11 on it, in a bottle dump as a kid. I still have that original key found long ago. Anybody found skeleton keys MD'ing? This one I'm showing here: what do you think - to a castle door, jail door, or pirate's chest? None of the above?

Maybe I can use to go 'steampunk' now. L

Looks like a early jailers key. Awesome key! Must be the key to skull island.
