You can also use
gpg -k \&KEYGRIP
to list a key. And with gpgsm use
gpgsm -k --with-ephemeral-keys \&KEYGRIP
to see whether there is such a key.

Make a backup of the key and if sometime in the future you run into
decrypt problems (or trying to connect to some rareley used server)

A canceled or crashed key generation or import might be the culprit.

Just to be sure, you quoted the ampersand, right. It works for me and
some GnuPG components are using it a lot. Just a quick test:
$ ~/b/gnupg-2.2/g10/gpg -k \&1BFC2CF9BC9C265E6D3CC6B966C883722C5256C8

using my development version of 2.2 but I can't remember that we ever
had a regression. It is a bit slow on a larger keyring, though.
