NOW SOLD – sorry these keyrings have all been sold and can no longer be ordered
We are not licensed by Jaguar Land Rover Ltd to reproduce any of the recent Jaguar logos and none of the keyrings listed here for sale in this website shop feature any of those logos.
The keyrings in this listing are historic original vintage Jaguar keyrings which were manufactured over 40 years ago and are intended to be used with classic Jaguar motor cars- or to be bought for including in a collection of vintage Jaguar keyrings.
We are offering these rare original Jaguar chequerboard growler Kings International keyrings which came to us from USA .
These keyrings are new old stock and in mint condition and were produced in the 1970s.
The vitreous enamel badges are mounted onto keyfobs gold embossed ‘TOP GRAIN LEATHER’ .
In the 1970s many keyfobs were embossed as leather but were in fact faux leather – these keyfobs are in faux leather !
Kings International were a small keyring manufacturer based in New York City, USA.
The back of the badges have ‘KINGS INT’L N.Y.C. 10011’ cast into them.
The genuine vitreous enamel badges are copies of the CUD chequerboard Jaguar badges produced in England in the 1960s.
Bud Marston mentions King’s International of New York in his ‘Vintage Jaguar keyrings’ book featured at the beginning of our Jaguar section here in this website shop.
Bud shows a couple of examples of their keyrings in his book and suggests that Kings International production may have later moved from New York to Taiwan – nothing new there then as virtually all keyring production in England moved to Taiwan and The Far East in the 1980s !
These keyrings are historic examples of the very few Jaguar keyrings which were produced in USA – a tiny fraction of the colossal quantity which were produced in England at that time – and this is a rare opportunity to purchase one of these 40+ year old vintage keyrings in new old stock condition .
When the keyrings have been sold then this listing will be cancelled. 00/57 11/20
