mystery key

Yesterday I found this on my way home from work.
The key couldn’t even be turned in the lock, but I figured that somewhere, in the right place at the right time, there had to be something it could unlock. Some door it could open in a wall that previously had no doors.
Today I showed it to Kris and Feli in the garden of a small café, and there the key actually turned and could even be removed from the lock. Later we realized that the café’s cash register still says “Schillinge” and “Groschen” below its mechanical display (Austria’s old currency before the introduction of the Euro in 2002).
We’re very close.


  1. Looks like either a garage door lock, or the half of a broken double sided lock cilinder?

  2. You have the biggest part of the lock, and the key. Now to find the missing part and the right time and place to unlock that portal…. ;)
