NOW SOLD – Sorry this keyring has now been sold and can no longer be ordered
What a superb keyring !
– and the only one of it’s kind in this brand new condition that we have ever listed over the last 10 years.
These keyrings very seldom appear – let alone in this brand new old stock condition.
The bright nickel plated vitreous enamel badge in dark cobalt blue enamel is mounted onto a keyfob in genuine full grain black leather.
This keyring dates from the 1980s when this ‘perforated’ badge style was being used and was made by the famous Manhattan Windsor badgemakers of Birmingham.
They had previously made Mercedes Benz keyrings in the 1970s with the fully enclosed badge and for the 1980s used the same die for the badges but milled the 3 perforations out which resulted in their details being almost milled out with the perforations on the back of the badge !
If you look closely at the photo of the back of the badge you will just be able to make out ‘MA’ ( MANHATTAN ) just above the ‘MADE IN ENGLAND’.
An outstanding keyring and the one in the photos is the actual one which you will receive.
When it has been sold this listing will be cancelled.
The values of vintage keyrings in this sort of condition for prestige marques have recently increased dramatically.
It has become very difficult to source Mercedes Benz keyrings of this quality for listing for sale in this website shop. 00/571 02/20
