NOW SOLD – sorry this keyring has now been sold and can no longer be ordered
We make and work with keyrings day-in-day-out and can become rather blase to keyrings in general…………………..and then one like this one turns up !
What an astonishing find !
This is the holy grail which owners of the original 1961 onwards Austin Mini Mk I search for in vain.
An original Austin Mini keyring in new old stock mint condition with a tan pigskin leather keyfob !
The only one which we have ever listed in this incredible condition.
This keyring has never been used and was made in the very early 1960s.
The vitreous enamel badge is mounted onto a keyfob in genuine tan pigskin.
Pigskin was usually reserved for keyfobs for prestige marques such as Aston Martin & Jaguar and was prized for it’s appearance and durability.
Made by Avon Cliff who were a small firm of badgemakers in the late 1950s and early 1960s – we very occasionally come across their keyrings.
The original Austin Mini in 1959 was called The Se7en but then became the Austin Mini in 1961.
This keyring will date from the very early 1960s – possibly from 1961 – and is original & correct for 1961-1967 Austin Mini Mk I.
The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive.
When it has been sold this listing will be cancelled – try to find another one like this ! 00/59 12/20
