Original Vintage & Restored Leather Keyrings for Classic Cars & Motorcycles


Caterham Super 7 – original old stock chrome enamel badge remounted onto a new leather keyfob


1 in stock

An original vitreous enamel Caterham Super 7 keyfob badge  which will have been produced in the 1980s which we are offering  remounted onto a new leather keyfob as can be seen in the photos .

We have very few of these chrome plated enamel badges left and each one is slightly different – so we prefer to list each one separately and the photos are of the actual keyring which you will receive .

This particular badge is in excellent condition with 2 or 3 slight dimples in the enamel which can only be seen as the badge is tilted from side to side in a light source .

We have remounted this particular badge onto a new keyfob in black saddlery hide  – if you would prefer a badge mounted onto a keyfob in different coloured leather ( green keyfobs & tan keyfobs were popular – and even red ) then please let us know and we should be able to help at no extra charge ( one enthusiastic customer had 3 keyrings in 3 different keyfob colours ! )

Production of the Lotus 7 ended in 1972 & Caterham bought the rights to the car in 1973 & production started.

Most modern Caterham keyfob badges will now be made in resin based enamel – not solid yellow & green vitreous enamel like these.

We would think that these badges will date from the early to mid 1980s.

They have the maker’s name on the back of the badges ( CAXTON of KEW ) – which gives a good clue to the date- Caxtons have been closed for a long time.

The badges are in new condition and will never have been issued but all are different with dimples in the enamel and very slight unimportant flaws .

The customer who had 3 keyrings actually sent a badge of his own which he had found elsewhere to be mounted – we noted that it was just the same with slight flaws even though it had probably been from a different batch at the time .

Caxton of Kew were a traditional manufacturer and one of the last to still lay the vitreous enamel by hand – this results in slight variations from badge to badge .

Hand laid enamel tends to have dimples which sets these badges apart from modern resin based enamel badges which are always ‘boringly’ perfect !

Additionally the badges are relatively thin and consequently lightweight – as befits a Caterham Super 7 – and we have therefore chosen to offer them mounted onto the thinnest  keyfob which we produce – our slimline teardrop keyfob shape as shown in the photos .
