Found Keso-type key. Can you identify?

Greetings Locksmiths,

I found a set of keys the other day, and I'm trying to track down the owner. One the keys looks like a Keso dimpled key. I have one of these myself, a Sargent Keso. My limited understanding is that they're high-security, and only made by the manufacturer.

Would any of you recognize the design? The key has a bright red plastic handhold, with a six-pointed star pressed into both sides of the red plastic. The key is somewhat shorter than the Keso that I have; the metal portion is only about an inch long. There are three different sets of dimples differentiated by their depth -- flush, half, and full indent.

I know it's a long shot, especially if there are generic equivalents sold commercially with lockboxes and such, but I know these things can be expensive. If I lost my Sargent Keso, I would be very glad to get it back.

Please email if you recognize the design, or have some insights.

Thanks for reading, Kenneth Jones

Your best best for returning it is turning it in to a lost-and-found at Yale and hoping whoever owns it comes looking for it. Most folks don't

*WANT* you to know they own a pariticular key, for fear of the key coming back temporarily and then leaving with a bunch of other stuff.

Probably a key to a steering lock like "The Club".
