These superb quality vitreous enamel badges with the classic Mercedes Benz star logo were produced for an exhibition a few years ago. We have a limited quantity of these badges left .
We do not hold a licence to reproduce the Mercedes Benz logo .
The classic Mercedes logo has remained almost unchanged over the years – so this keyring is suitable for use with almost any Mercedes Benz motor car.
It is known that Mercedes Benz did occasionally offer keyrings in tan pigskin leather – and a few customers have asked us to produce a Mercedes Benz keyring in this material – so here is the result.
Pigskin is a most up-market material which was sometimes used for special keyrings for prestige cars – the main one being Aston Martin who did make use of pigskin for some of their keyrings.
Pigskin is almost a material of the past – and it took us quite some time to locate a grade of genuine pigskin suitable for making a leather keyfob.
Suede & nubuck pigskin seems generally available but is totally unsuitable for keyring production – the pigskin which we eventually tracked down was from a manufacturer of hipflasks who had closed down. The pigskin had been used to cover leather panels on the hipflasks which used to be an essentials with the shooting fraternity.
This keyring with this badge will be offered whilst we still have stock of the badges.
When we run out of the badges then this listing will be cancelled.
