David Brown - original vintage early 1970s keyring


1 in stock

This David Brown keyring has been in our reference collection since February 2014 and we have just decided to list it for sale.

In all that time we have only ever seen another couple of examples – both in a shocking state as you would expect of a keyring which has been subjected to the rigours of use on a farm tractor !

This keyring is in very good condition with the vitreous enamel badge mounted onto a keyfob in genuine black leather.

Made by the famous Manhattan Windsor Co. of Birmingham whose details are cast into the back of the badge.

This keyring will be original & correct for use with any early 1970s David Brown tractor – and hundreds were in use on Lincolnshire farms at that time.

I was working on a farm near Bourne in Licolnshire at that time and well remember a couple of brand new David Brown Selectamatics arriving on the farm.

Both were parked in an open barn for the night with full tanks of fuel and left running on 2/3rds throttle for the night.

In the morning they were considered to be fully run in and put to work immediately !

The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive.

When it has been sold this listing will be cancelled.
