NOW SOLD – Sorry this keyring has now been sold and can no longer be ordered
We have just two examples of this very scarce keyring to offer. They are the only examples of this ‘T-bone’ badge design on a Humber keyring which we have ever seen.
There is something really special about having a completely original vintage keyring which dates from the actual time when your car was first built.
These keyrings are exactly that – they have not been remade or remounted by us – they are original vintage items.
Dating from the 1960s they have been in store for around 50 years and are new old stock having never been used.
Made in the 1960s by an unknown English maker – almost certainly based in Birmingham or London.
Brand new condition being new old stock. The chrome plated vitreous enamel badge looks as if it was made just last week & the genuine leather keyfob is in un-marked tan leather with good tight stitching. The back of the fob has ‘TOP GRAIN LEATHER’ embossed in gold leaf . This is genuine leather – many keyfobs from the time were embossed as genuine leather but were in fact imitation leather !
A top quality British made item produced at a time when many items like this were becoming mass produced & very poorly finished.
Original & correct for any 1960s Humber Super Snipe motor car.
Thousands of Humber cars left the factory in the early 1960s and then later in the 1960s when Rootes took Humber over. Only a tiny handful will ever be driven with a completely original keyring like this one. Literally the cherry on the cake for that perfect car !
When both keyrings have been sold then this listing will cancel. 59/52 11/19
