With the end of the pin still being completely round and thicker than the flat part, I’d be tempted to try a normal key.

its possible that the flat part is there to aid key cutting on an early machine?

the Chubb key used on those old style I’m sure are the same shape all along

Makes perfect sense and was what i was going to do originally for my customer the last time i saw one but did the change as mentioned above.

Had the customer bring the lock in it's a chubb blue flash. From the early 60s. A disaster for chubb as they tried to save cost with plastic parts. They tried to save face saying it was meant for the South African Market.

As it doesn't have a curtain you can use a standard blank as shown below. So in 20 to 30 years the next one comes in you'll now you can cut it on a normal 5g utility blank
