NOW SOLD – sorry this keyring has now been sold and can no longer be ordered
This keyring has an original late 1960s vitreous enamel badge which is offered mounted onto one of our slimline teardrop keyfobs in full grain green leather as can be seen in the photos.
The vitreous enamel badge is in good condition with the slightest bit of the nickel plating having flaked off the edge of the badge at 11 o’clock on the face of the badge ( the badge is almost 50 years old ! )
Also a patch of the slightest of dark staining in the yellow enamel which will have been there since the badge was made.
The listing price takes these slight ‘issues’ into consideration.
All this can be seen in the high resolution enlarged photos in the listing but is not particularly noticeable when viewed at life size.
The badge features the slightly fuller Lotus typeface favoured by this particular badgemaker whose identity will never be known but almost certainly would have been based in a small workshop in Birmingham at the time.
Examples of his badges do appear from time to time .
The badge is original & correct for any late 1960s or early 1970s Lotus motor car .
The keyring in the photos is the one which you will receive.
When it has been sold then this listing will cancel. 59/72 05/20
