I like "Nobody's Fault But Mine". Does anybody know what key of harmonica Robert played in it?

This from Steve "The Lemon" Sauer:

“Since Plant plays 'crossharp' style on the Led Zeppelin tracks, the key of the harmonica is a perfect fourth above the key of the song. So, for instance, the three main examples of his harmonica use in the studio with Zep -- You Shook Me, Bring It On Home and Nobody's Fault but Mine -- are in the key of E, so he is playing an A harp. On Poor Tom he uses an F harp, and on When the Levee Breaks it's a B-flat harp.”
