Is this a real key or what?

I have had this key for a long time and have always wondered if it is a real key or an advertising giveaway key holder.
I have searched the web and have not been able to find anything similar.
It is about 3 inches long and the rectangular bow is approx 1 inch X 1.5 inches and the thickness is 0.117 inches and has bitting like a real key.
The key ring that it came with measures 1.5 inches in diameter.
If it is a real key, what would it be used for?
Thanks for any light that you can shed on this.

Edit: I added a photo with a typical house key for comparison

Real key, it goes to a prison lock like a Mogul cylinder.

Yeah was gonna say. Looks like an old jail key. I would love one of those cylinders. Even without a key.

Never seen a Chubb prison mogul before. Wish you had the lock to go with it.

Just when you think you've learned it all, that is when you find you haven't learned anything yet.
