Lorenz Telefunken T2 Luftwaffe Morse Code Telegraph Key

The T2 was developed for use in aircraft being a smaller and lighter key than other models and was called the Lorenz key. The name come from the factory that initially developed this key, but subsequently they were built by several suppliers. Ours is clearly marked on the data plate Gerat 124-402A-1 Werk nr.40126-40 and Anforder Z Ln 26906. The case appears to be made of Bakelite and hinges up. The mechanism has a lightning bolt in red we assume indicating high voltage within. The base features non slip rubber and is ink stamped 11 37. The only issue with this example is the cable is partly perished and no plug is fitted but this could easily be removed for display purposes. We bought this key with the DR2 ‘Knemeyer’ we have also just listed directly from the family of the wartime owner. He appears to have flown the ME 410 and we speculate this may have been removed from this aircraft. We have certainly seen the T2 being used in the ME110. Measures 6” x3” (15 cm x 8 cm)
