These badges were made by Manhattan Windsor of Birmingham – now sadly closed .

Manhattan Windsor were the chosen manufacturer for most MG keyfob badges and keyrings at that time .

Their details are cast onto the back of each of the badges.

The badges were made in the 1960s and were apparently never issued – as we have never seen any examples of this exact design in circulation.

The badges are date correct for MGB, Midget & Magnette but there are no hard & fast rules because owners would buy a keyring and then use it for years in a succession of later cars.

The badges are in excellent condition after around 50 years in storage and will have originally been treated with a ‘whiff’ of cellulose lacquer to prevent the gilt plating from tarnishing.

We have reapplied this thin coat of lacquer which will tend to wear off in use and the badge will remain bright whilst the keyring is in regular use – otherwise the gilt plating can be restored to brightness with a quick rub over of any metal polish. SMOSO   00/56    11/22
