NOW SOLD – sorry this keyring has now been sold and can no longer be ordered
This is only the 2nd example of one of these 1950s MG keychains which we have ever seen.
This will date from the mid 1950s before keyrings with leather keyfobs as we know them today came into general use. They started to appear in the very late 1950s.
Curiously keyrings are still called ‘keychains’ in USA.
The keychain is in excellent condition with the vitreous enamel on gilt badge mounted onto a short ‘snake’ chain as can be seen in the photos.
This keychain is a very rare survivor ( how does a tiny thing like this survive for over 60 years ?) and is original & correct for use with any 1950s MG motor car.
The keychain in the photos is the actual one which you will receive.
When it has been sold this listing will cancel. 59/96 05/20
