The badges which we mount onto these keyrings are original vitreous enamel badges which are over 50 years old.

Most of the original badges which have survived are no longer in good condition – but we only use badges which are in very good condition although with close scrutiny even these may have slight marks after 50 years of use.

You will be buying an original 50 + year old vitreous enamel badge mounted onto a new leather keyfob.

This will then be good for another 50 + years of use – provided petroleum fuel holds out that long !

The National Benzole ‘Mr. Mercury’ with winged helmet was one of the most successful and well known advertising images of the 20th Century- instantly recognisable .

It became a symbol of all that was good and trusted in motoring at that time – almost like The Bank of England.

We still look at that badge with that familiar winged helmet profile and wistfully think that image and what it represents can never be bettered.

We are offering these original badges remounted onto our slimline teardrop keyfobs in full grain black leather – which is how they were originally mounted.

Occasionally we also have the later badges which have ‘Super’ on them in red enamel- also the much later square ‘National’ badge with the winged head set on a blue background :CLFWEB - 14 384

When these are available then they will be listed here in the shop in a separate listing.
