Thought I would share some photos of a NOS switch plate I just picked up - pin back - # 55 tumbler - never had a key inserted or a screw driver on the rear terminal screws. Notice the nice white painted background of the lettering. The front of the plate is obviously colored but the rear has no paint ! I installed one of my ammeters.

55 is a rare key when you need one. It is also the key number used for the replacement tumblers.

Steve, I hate to disappoint you, but that switch is not NOS! It's NORS! Notice there is no Ford script at the bottom. I've got one like that too, and I think it is a C.D. Does the key turn? On mine the key won't turn. I believe it's because the pot metal has swollen.

Quite possible Larry - this switch plate came out of a closed Ford Dealership in Mississippi.

Yes, it's my key and it does turn - thanks for pointing that out !

Interesting to see an original switch that's in nice condition. Looks like the paint was applied in one quick pass with a spray gun and the back appears to have overspray that was in the room where the paint was applied.
The switch on my 24 Coupe didn't have much of the paint left on the front but a nice thick coat on the back. Makes me wonder how and where Ford painted the switches.

I have a couple like that, not nos but pretty nice anyway will use one on my 25 touring if I ever get around to restoring it. Also have a nice speedometer with the mounting plate complete with drive and cable and correct road gear for the same car
