I found this page using Google:

http://artifaxbooks.com/fsusmilkeys.htm

Scroll down and near the bottom of the page, this Morse key is shown with information and more photos available.

That's a nice garage sale find!

Thanks. That is it! The metal label on mine is in perfect condition. The underneath part needs a little work, but hopefully it should be able to get into working condition pretty easily with some help from some long time hams.
