The key lock lids were used from 23 to 27. The lids for the 23 to 25 decks were a simple flat door while the 26 and 27 deck lids were large and contoured to the shape of the deck.

There were also earlier keys with a triangle shaped end like the ones used on old treadle sewing machines. Langs sells all three keys and lists the years they were used.

Oddly I have the same question. I have my first T and my first investments, other than the T were books.
So which book? My 1920 has two handles, got that, but the deck lid is simple sheet metal. The sheet metal has no reinforcement but seems to work fine.

Richard probably has had several copies of Bruce's book,The car that changed the world,I was refering to it. You can also check the online encylopedia.

Jack;
I have both books but don't know where they are since the move. The turtle deck I have must be a '26-'27 turtle deck.
I am going to sell it but didn't know how to list it.
