Original Vintage & Restored Leather Keyrings for Classic Cars & Motorcycles


Jaguar E-Type – original early 1970s US market leaper badge in ochre yellow enamel remounted onto a new leather keyfob


1 in stock

An original vintage Jaguar E-Type keyfob badge which we would think will have been produced in the 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 this keyring has been sold this listing will be cancelled .

The vitreous enamel badge mounted onto this keyring is in excellent condition and we have remounted it onto a new keyfob in full grain black leather .

These badges were among the first to feature the now famous Jaguar Leaper image and the layout of these badges has to be a triumph of design with the ascending font and dramatic leaper set against a background of solid black enamel .

‘MADE IN ENGLAND’ cast into the reverse of the badge .

The badges will have been produced in Birmingham and mounted onto leather keyfobs for use with Jaguar E-types bound for the American market .

So far as we are aware the original badges were only produced in this ( very 1970s ) yellow ochre enamel colour .

Badges offered in other enamel colours are unlikely to be originals .

An original keyring with this ochre badge is photographed and described in Bud Marston’s ‘Vintage Jaguar keyrings’ book featured at the beginning of our Jaguar section in this website shop .

Bud is unsure whether these keyrings were provided with the cars by Jaguar themselves or distributed through North American Jaguar dealerships .

The photos show the actual keyring which you will receive.
