Let me also add that using gpg without any command (as in "...|gpg") is
deprecated because the output you see is more of a debug message than a
weel defined output.  This is also the reason why you see the expired
keys with that command.

To view a key wityhout first importing it you can do:

  gpg --import-options show-only --import 

(Suggestions for the name of a shortcut command are welcome)
