This is the gaffed key bought at Tannens many years ago.

Should the gaffed key have 3 or 4 pieces?

It seems the center piece should have the long part attached to the upper part but this one here is in 2 pieces. Is this broken?

Any info would be appreciated.

I bought one recently here on the Café. Unfortunately I'm away from home at present but am fairly sure the centre piece is one section. So I believe it should have 3 parts to it as the band slips just under a very small slit at the connection to the shaft and the square key top section. So perhaps someone put too much pressure and snapped it away from the main key shaft.
