£35.00

1 in stock

An original Mini Clubman keyring which will have been produced in the 1970s .

We have just this one example of this keyring to offer – when it has been sold this listing will be cancelled .

The first BMC Minis were badged as either Austin or Morris but from the Mark III variant from 1969 onwards Mini was launched as a marque in it’s own right .

Keyrings for the earlier Austin & Morris minis can be found in the Austin & Morris sections of this online shop.

This is an original keyring which will date from the 1970s – and is in excellent condition .

It can hardly have been used .

The acrylic dome badge is mounted onto a keyfob in genuine black leather gold embossed ‘ Real Leather – Made in England ‘ – although ‘ Made in England ‘ has not been embossed strongly .

The keyfob is bonded together with imitation stitching embossed around the edge of the keyfob .

One of our customers is an authority on Minis and has been in contact to tell us that strictly speaking the Mini Clubman badge had a longer shield and that the badge was also used for Mini Mark 3 and Clubman in the 1970s – possibly keyfob badgemakers used a shorter shield for their keyfob badge ( probably because it fitted inside a circular keyfob badge better .)

He goes on to say that in the Austin and Morris era, there were various models of minis produced, such as Cooper, Cooper S and etc… but they are mostly put together in the BMLC era.

He thinks that the short shield badge like the badge on this keyring will be correct for all the Minis produced in 70s BLMC era.

The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive .
