--German military. 'Taste P" = key type P.
'Taste'  pronounced something like tahss-tuh.
"Vor dem Offnen..." = Before opening, remove plug

>"dtf/44" on the bottom.

--dtf = "secret manufacturer's code". some rifle and gun type
booksellers sell a reference book that relates the code letters
to the actual manufacturer name. i'm don't know how complete the
work is, for electronic material.

44 = year of manufacture. practically the last production year
for this equipment, due to Germany's collapse in early 45.

>The cable has a PL055B plug.

--the original dual-banana plug has been removed. this slightly
devalues the key, at least in the wider selling market.
