NOW SOLD – sorry this keyring has now been sold and can no longer be ordered
An original Jaguar keyring dating from the late 1960s or possibly the very early 1970s .
The keyring is in excellent condition with a vitreous enamel badge mounted onto a genuine tan leather keyfob.
This keyring will almost certainly have been made by Melsom Products Ltd of Birmingham and right at the end of their production .
The badge is not stamped with their details but is mounted onto one of their trademark ‘keyflix’ keyfobs.
Bud Marston describes and illustrates similar keyrings made by other manufacturers in his ‘Vintage Jaguar Keyrings’ book featured at the beginning of our Jaguar section here in this website shop.
He describes the badge as a ‘Yellow/Silver Border Red Growler’ .
Bud’s examples have circular badges whereas this example has the ‘cropped edge’ circular badge which has been copied by others recently and is sometimes seen offered for sale with the badge mounted onto a machine made imitation leather keyfob.
The example which we are offering here is the only original example which we have ever seen.
The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive.
When it has been sold this listing will be cancelled. 00/57 12/19
