    Key tag attached to key ring. If someone lost their keys, they could be dropped in a post box and they would be sent to the address on the tag. The stamped number would tell Amoco who the tag was registered to and then return their keys.

    ;Key ring given as a customer service.
    When registered by Amoco using that serial number, the customer can be contacted in the event of loss.

    There WAS a time when folks were THAT honest.
