Looking for a 30A key for my W.E.payphone vault door. Thanks

Each 30-type lock is keyed differently; so, you will probably never find a matching key.

Is this on a 3-slot payphone or single slot? If on a 3-slot, you can probably remove the back of the phone to get to the lock. Then you can replace it with another 30-type lock that has a key, or with a 29A or 29B lock which was originally used on the upper housing of a WE single slot payphone. Keys are available for these 29-type locks.
