Mercedes Benz – original vintage late 1980s vitreous enamel on bright gold plated badge remounted onto a new leather keyfob

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

An original Mercedes Benz keyfob badge which we would date as having been produced in the late 1980s which we have remounted onto a new leather keyfob as can be seen in the photos .

Just this one keyring with this badge to offer – when it has been sold this listing will be cancelled .

Up until the 1980s almost all keyrings for the world’s cars were made in England – it was quite an industry which has now moved to The Far East.

This vitreous enamel on bright gold plate ( not genuine 18K gold ! ) Mercedes Benz keyfob badge will have been made in England and is in good condition apart from some dark staining in the white enamel.

White vitreous enamel was always very prone to staining – and this can be seen in the enlarged high resolution listing photos.

Not particularly noticeable when viewed with the naked eye at life size – but there all the same and the price of this keyring takes this into account.

Mercedes Benz keyfob badges in the 1970s were generally solid badges but by the 1980s often had 3 perforated sections milled out of the badge like this example .

By the 1990s the badges had reverted back to being solid again.

Mercedes Benz were known to favour using blue leather for some of their keyfobs at the time – so we have chosen to remount this badge onto a new keyfob in navy blue leather as can be seen.

The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive. SMOSO  00/54    11/22
