My Keychains are made from 8 pound rail used in Gold and Silver Mines in Montana( Rail weight is measured by the yard, 1 yard or three feet of this is 8 pounds) and was used during the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. These are from Rail I personally brought back to Nebraska and handmade them from a piece of Rail that was manufactured in Colorado in 1881 for some of the Gold and Silver Mines up in Montana as well as throughout America. I cut, cleaned it up and made them into these awesome Keychains. They are just under 3/8 inches thick and weight around 1 1/2 ounces. One of the last things I do is insert one of the thickest Jump Rings I can get through, almost 2 mm thick. “MADE IN AMERICA”. Please email if you have any questions or would like more images. I will answer you back just as soon as I can since I’m a working Railroader myself. I restored the rail close to its actually color when it was first made and coated them in penetrating oil. These, as well as some of my others pieces, are not clear coated. Most want to feel the natural history to them. Every piece is just a little different from the others and each piece is just a little different from the others.
This is for 1 Keychain and will be shipped in a padded envelope.
