BMW - original late 1960s/early 1970s melsom gilt badge inlaid into a new leather keyfob

£65.00

We are not licensed by BMW to produce any of their logos and no keyrings which we offer in this website shop have BMW badges which have been made by us.

The keyrings offered in this listing have original badges which are around 50 years old.

We have recently been offered just a few of these original BMW keyfob badges which date from the late 1960s or possibly very early 1970s.

The badges are new old stock and have never been issued.

Produced by the very well known badgemakers Melsom Products Ltd of Birmingham – at that time almost all keyrings and keyfob badges for the world’s cars were made in England – it was quite an industry.

The gilt badges are in excellent condition with hand laid vitreous enamel .

As usually happens with these original gilt badges – the gilt finish has mellowed to give an authentic ‘glowing’ appearance which could never be replicated by artificial means.

It is the result of the way the badges were made all those years ago and then many years of storage – the badges are unmistakably ‘old stock’.

A superb keyring which would be correct for use with any 1960s or early 1970s BMW motor car – or could be used as a ‘retro’ keyring in a much later car.

You will most certainly not be disappointed with these keyrings !
