    Desmond's fail-safe key with "Joe Inman" dog tag from Lost. (ABC, 2004-2010) Ball chain necklace measuring 14 in. strung with an aluminum 2 x 1 in. dog tag imprinted "Inman, Joe 376-59-2383 Catholic", and a 2.75 in. fail-safe key with hexagonal cast resin fob imprinted with the familiar DHARMHA Initiative logo. The fail-safe key is kept by Kelvin Joe Inman until the day of the system failure and the crash of Oceanic flight 815 when Desmond accidentally kills him and takes the key, which he then hides inside his copy of Charles Dickens' Our Mutual Friend. After Locke causes another system failure by destroying the computer, Desmond retrieves the key and triggers the failsafe mechanism, finally terminating the electro-magnetic anomaly (and preventing a global catastrophe) and preventing the destruction of the Swan station. All lightly studio distressed. In production used fine condition.
