NOW SOLD – sorry this keyring has now been sold and can no longer be ordered
We have just this one example to offer of this original vintage new old stock Norton keyring which will have been produced in the late 1950s or very early 1960s.
The keyring is in mint condition with a vitreous enamel badge mounted onto a thin genuine black leather keyfob.
The keyfob is in a leather which is of a lighter thickness than we tend to use – which is befitting of a light keyring intended for use on a motorcycle and the leather is in a high gloss finish ( which looks rather plasticky – but is actually leather ) This is probably waterproof to a degree for use on an open motorcycle in all weathers.
Produced at the time in Birmingham by AE Wassell badgemakers who specialised in making keyrings for motor cycles.
Original Norton keyrings are very rare items – over the last 10 years we have had hardly any original examples let alone in this mint condition !
We can only assume that Norton keyfobs in the 50s & 60s received the same level of use & abuse as the bikes themselves and for that reason very few keyrings have survived.
The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive.
When it has been sold this listing will cancel. 59/44 05/20
