Just a few badges left.
This listing is to order the original old stock vintage black vitreous enamel on gilt badge mounted onto one of our torpedo keyfobs.
Although not originally mounted onto torpedo keyfobs – customers have asked us to mount this badge onto torpedo keyfobs .
These can be ordered in any of our leather colours.
We are very fortunate to have limited stocks of this original old stock vitreous enamel gilt badge .
These badges were made by Manhattan Windsor of Birmingham – now sadly closed. Each badge has their details on the back.
The badges are in excellent condition after over 50 years in storage and look just ‘so’ – whilst being in mint condition they do look their age. Age is still something which cannot be successfully replicated . We have chosen not to polish the badges although you can if you prefer – they do polish up well.
We prefer to see them just as they are in this pleasing old gilt finish which is just how you would expect to see them after all those years of storage. They will polish to a degree with use in any case.
This badge is original & correct for use with MGA & ZA & ZB MG Magnette – possibly also very early MGBs.
There are no hard & fast rules – because owners kept keyrings to use with later cars at the time rather than buy a new one each time they changed their car.
