Jaguar – XJ6 & XJ12 original vintage new old stock 1970s Manhattan Windsor black vitreous enamel badge keyring with tan leather keyfob – collector’s item

NOW SOLD – sorry this keyring has now been sold and can no longer be ordered

An original vintage Jaguar keyring which will have been produced in the 1970s .

When this keyring has been sold this listing will be cancelled.

We have just this one example of this keyring to offer with a black vitreous enamel badge mounted onto a keyfob in genuine tan leather of generous thickness .

The keyring is new old stock so is in mint condition .

These keyrings were produced in the 1970s and it is known that some were issued with the Jaguar XJ6 in the mid 1970s .

A Jaguar authority in Sweden has made contact to say that keyrings with these enamel badges were listed in the Jaguar parts list for use with Series II XJ6 ( 1974-1979 )

The part no. was BD 38585

Another Jaguar authority in New York has confirmed the above information and reports that these keyrings were also used as general Jaguar keyrings at that time in USA and were available from others as well as from Jaguar .

We are most grateful to these two authorities for the above information and also to Mr. Bud Marston in USA who has advised us on many of our Jaguar keyrings and advises that this keyring was also used with the Jaguar XJ12 .

In his book ‘Vintage Jaguar Keyrings’ ( featured at the beginning of our Jaguar section in this website ) which was published in Autumn 2018 – Bud describes this badge as the ‘XJ recessed growler’ on account of how the growler depiction is recessed into the surface of the badge .

In his book Bud refers to the badge as having been produced in black, green , grey & red enamel .

The keyring was made by Manhattan Windsor of Birmingham who made so many classic Jaguar keyrings at the time .

The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive.  SMOSO   00/591   10/21
