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

An original British Leyland keyfob badge which will have been produced in the very late 1960s or early 1970s which we have remounted onto a new leather keyfob as can be seen in the photos .

We have just this one keyring with this badge to offer – when it has been sold this listing will be cancelled .

This vitreous enamel on gilt British Leyland keyfob badge is in excellent condition and we have remounted it onto a new keyfob in black saddlery hide.

The original shine of the gilt plating has mellowed over the years as it always does to give a most attractive ‘ old gold ‘ effect as can be seen in the photos .

‘ Made in England’ marked on the reverse of the badge .

British Leyland was not formed until 1968 – so this badge will have been produced just after then .

British Leyland was formed in 1968 by the merger of British Motor Holdings (BMH) and Leyland Motor Corporation (LMC)

At that time LMC was a successful manufacturer whilst BMH was close to collapse.

The formation of British Leyland combined most of the remaining independent British car manufacturing companies and included car, bus and truck manufacturers .

The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive . SMOSO   00/53   06/24
