Cobra – original 1960s melsom white background badge inlaid into a new keyfob in blue leather

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

An original vitreous enamel badge which will have been produced in the 1960s which we have inlaid into a new leather keyfob in Royal blue leather as can be seen in the photos.

Just this one keyring with the badge inlaid into a blue leather keyfob – when this keyring has been sold this listing will be cancelled.

Vitreous enamel badges like this one were made by Melsom Products of Birmingham UK  in the 1960s. Some badges which they made would have had a metal loop on the top of the badge to allow the badge to be mounted onto a keyfob by means of a leather hinge.

Others ( like this one ) were manufactured just the same but without the metal loop and would have been intended for  inlaying into the top of a gear lever knob.

We have adapted this badge to inlay into the keyfob by means of bonding an oversized brass plate to the base of the badge and then laminating the baseplate within the keyfob.

No chance of the badge ever falling out of the keyfob !

The badge has then been inlaid into one of our slimline teardrop hand stitched keyfobs in Royal blue leather which has resulted in a keyring of rather smaller dimensions than our regular teardrops – which many customers prefer.

The badge is original & correct for any Cobra.

The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive . SMOSO  00/55   12/22
