NOW SOLD – sorry this keyring has now been sold and can no longer be ordered
The badge mounted onto this keyring was made in the 1980s by the very well known Manhattan Windsor Badgemakers of Birmingham UK.
At that time Manhattan Windsor made all keyrings for Official UK Porsche Dealerships – production has now of course moved overseas and Manhattan Windsor sadly closed their doors quite a few years back.
We have mounted this vitreous enamel badge onto one of our classic keyfobs in full grain black leather which is how it would have originally been mounted- all Porsche dealership badges were mounted onto rectangular shaped keyfobs in black leather.
These genuine original Porsche dealership badges are becoming very hard to find- particularly in this condition.
The badge is in excellent condition with the vitreous enamelling as vibrant as the day it was fired .
The black enamelling on the stag’s horns was always a bit hit-and-miss – this example is no different !
The gilt plating on the back of the badge has a small area where the plating has flaked off – rather unimportant as it can only be seen when the badge is flipped up from the leather fob .
These badges were fitted onto key rings which were supplied with new Porsche cars supplied by Official Porsche dealerships such as AFN in the 1980s and very early 1990s.
Original examples of these badges like this one do very occasionally crop up on internet auction sites – but very rarely in the condition that this badge is in.
Interestingly badge condition seems unimportant on the internet auction sites – damaged examples of these badges sometimes fetching well in excess of our asking price for this excellent remounted original example !
At the time of listing this keyring an enterprising ebayer was listing an identical badge for £300.00 – we do not know if they eventually got lucky !
The badge is original & correct for 1980s Porsche 924, 944, 928, 3.0 911SC & 911 Carrera 3.2. Also for 1989 – 1993 Carrera 964.
We can think of no better keyring to use with any of the above cars than this original period badge mounted onto this brand new hand made & hand stitched leather keyfob – a 35 + year old badge now remounted onto a brand new leather keyfob and ready for another 35 years of service.
The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive – when it has been sold then this listing will be cancelled. 00/521 04/20
