NOW SOLD – Sorry this keyring has now been sold and can no longer be ordered
This keyring is an original vintage item which was produced in the 1970s and is correct for 1969 – 1975 Mini Clubman- and probably most Minis produced in the 1970s BLMC era ( see comments below )
The vitreous enamel badge is still mounted onto the original genuine black leather keyfob.
The badge is in virtually mint condition whilst the leather keyfob is in very good condition with a few wrinkles in the leather from use.
No maker’s mark on the back of the badge – but will almost certainly have been made by one of the Birmingham badgemakers at the time.
The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive.
When it has been sold this listing will be cancelled.
Our friend & customer in Japan – Maro Kubota – is an authority on Minis and has been in contact to tell us that strictly speaking the Mini Clubman badge had a longer blue shield and than this badge and was also used for Mini Mark 3 and Clubman in the 1970s.
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 badge will be correct for all the Minis produced in 70s BLMC era. The badge was mounted on the Clubman but other minis produced at that time also had it.
All very confusing to us – thank goodness we have customers who know a lot more about the cars than we do ! 59/43 04/20
