Original Vintage & Restored Leather Keyrings for Classic Cars & Motorcycles


MG – original 1970s decal insert badge keyring

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

An original vintage MG keyring which will have been produced in the 1970s.

When this keyring has been sold this listing will be cancelled.

These keyrings are rare items because they were ‘budget’ keyrings and were soon discarded when they became worn out or when the owner changed their car .

Very few have survived after over 40 years.

The example in this listing is in excellent condition apart from having a small hole punched through the keyfob beneath the badge.

We do occasionally see keyrings for other makes of car like this – and can only assume that they have been pinned to a board as part of a collection at some stage or that when the owner sold the car which they were used with the keyring was pinned up in the garage as a ‘memento’ .

The keyring has a decal insert badge bonded onto a plated metal mount which is in turn mounted onto a keyfob in imitation black leather- embossed ‘REAL LEATHER’ !

This was common practice in the 1970s before trades description legislation had grown teeth .

During the 1970s there was still a considerable market for high quality keyrings for using with MG cars .

At the same time there was a market for a cheaper keyring like this one probably for use with everyday driver cars – of which there were plenty before MGs became the classics which they are today .

The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive. SMOSO  59/42   09/21
