Original vitreous enamel badges which will have been produced in 1979 which we have remounted onto new leather keyfobs as can be seen in the photos.
We have just a few keyrings with this badge – when these have all been sold this listing will be cancelled.
We have just a very small number of these original new old stock keyfob enamel badges made by the well respected Manhattan Windsor Co. in Birmingham ( sadly now closed )
These were apparently never issued and were made to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the mini in 1979.
These badges were examined by the technical editor of Mini World who identified them as having been produced for the Mini’s 20th Anniversary in 1979.
The red vitreous enamel badges in the badges is as fresh and vibrant as the day it was fired but is not as consistent in colour as modern resin based enamel badges – these badges are over 40 years old and do look their age .
The badges would have originally been treated with a ‘whiff’ of lacquer which would tend to wear off during use – we have re-applied this .
Each badge has ‘Manhattan Windsor-made in England’ on the back.
