NOW SOLD – sorry this keyring has now been sold and can no longer be ordered

The keyring in this listing is an original vintage BMW keyring which will have been produced around 25 years ago .

The keyring in this listing has a couple of flaws and is not to be confused with the mint condition new old stock dealership keyring which is in a separate listing ( unless now sold )

Just this one slightly flawed keyring to offer – when it has been sold this listing will be cancelled.

This keyring is in excellent condition with a jewellery grade vitreous enamel badge mounted onto a keyfob in genuine black leather of a generous thickness and appears to be new old stock apart from a couple of flaws :-

The two white vitreous enamel segments of the badge have some slight dark staining.

This is quite common in the case of white vitreous enamel and is hardly noticeable when viewed at life size with the naked eye and can just about be seen in the enlarged high resolution listing photos.

The back of the leather keyfob has some slight indents which can also just about be seen in the photos – and similar indents always soon happen when keyrings are used .

Examples of these keyrings do occasionally appear on internet auction sites but are almost always in well used condition  – these keyrings tended to be used on a daily basis and the vitreous enamel badges almost always have chips in the enamel around the edge of the badge and the leather keyfobs will be showing signs of wear .

These are the keyrings which were supplied with the top of the range cars which BMW had in it’s 1980s & 1990s line up.

These keyrings were almost certainly produced by Manhattan Windsor of Birmingham – some were produced with their name on the back of the badges but most were unmarked – most probably because BMW specified that they be left plain .

Manhattan Windsor were the premier manufacturer of quality automotive keyrings in the 1990s – sadly they closed their doors some years ago.

Superb quality keyrings which any BMW salesperson would have been proud to hand over with a new car .

These keyrings exhibit the level of quality which British manufacturers were capable of producing before many automotive keyrings later became mass produced throw -away items with plastic resin badges mounted onto imitation leather keyfobs .

The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive. SMOSO   00/57   11/22
