That does explain, however, why many of us are walking around with E/F keys to start our 68s.
Can't make that add up, EH [i think you meant H, not F] shoudn't fit a 68 or 67, different key groove positions, or did you meant the EH style key with the rectangular/oval head but with CD grooving?
Only CD grooving should fit 68 locks.

The original 67 - 68 B & S hex keys are listed on page 149 of the current Classic Industries catalog, which is an enormous pdf file, now 138MB in size @ 932 pages!!

Yep, "H" and "the EH style key with the rectangular/oval head but with CD grooving..."

So, the early style ones from Classic would say GM on one side (as pictured on pg. 149) and then Briggs and Stratton on the other?  Is that correct?  But I'm still unclear if these are ORIGINAL or REPRO?   If they are REPRO is this the best we can do?  Or does someone know if ORIGINAL ones are available somewhere?   Thanks.

Didn't you say earlier in this thread that that is what you got from Classic, GM stamped one side and Briggs and Stratton on the other??

I could not class them as repro if they do have Briggs and Stratton on one side and the GM trademark on the other side,
For a product to carry a manufacturers name and/or trademark it has to be at the very least done under licence from the owner/s of those names/trademarks, if manufactured by a 3rd party.

They don't qualify as NOS, only keys struck back in 67-68 would qualify as NOS, but they would qualify as reissues, or maybe even genuine reissues if the original B & S dies are being used to mint the heads by a 3rd party.
Definitely would qualify as genuine reissues if B & S are punching them out.

There is a company called www.jessersclassickeys.com that is advertises nos keys. I bought some nos keys for my 69 camaro, he can also stamp the key codes on the knock outs like the how the keys would have came from the factory when the car was new.

Hey good stuff, but none of their links [buttons] lead anywhere??? or do you have to sign up to even browse the site?? Tried sending an email to them via their web mail and it was returned to me as undeliverable??

I tried them too.  No Luck.  In the mean time, I found another set of hex keys for my '68.  I  got them in the mid 80's from NPD I think.  They say GM on BOTH sides, but I don't know if they are repros or not.

Joey's pretty busy, and not much for e-mails - use the phone and call him. His work is pricey, but perfect; his keys pass NCRS judging every time.

So is it nos, or 'nos like' repro's that he does under licence? or are they nos blanks but code cut using a punch machine instead of a milling machine to cut the bittings
