Porsche – original 1990s mint condition vitreous enamel Porsche ‘Heubach’ crest badge remounted onto a new leather keyfob

NOW SOLD – sorry this keyring has now been sold and can no longer be ordered

An original mint condition vitreous enamel Porsche crest keyfob badge which will have been produced in the 1990s which we have remounted onto a new leather keyfob as can be seen in the photos.

When this keyring with this badge has been sold this listing will be cancelled.

Original Porsche crest badge keyrings with the vitreous enamel badge hinged onto a genuine leather keyfob with a little leather strap have now become very sought after and valuable particularly if in excellent condition .

Please do not confuse these hinged badge keyrings with the modern Porsche keyrings with the badge bonded ( not hinged ) onto the surface of the keyfob .

The badge mounted onto this keyfob is an original 25 + year old hinged badge in mint unused condition which we have remounted onto a new keyfob in full grain black leather in exactly the same style – the Porsche shield keyfob with the characteristic internal plumping – just like the originals .

The vitreous enamel badge is in mint unused condition with perfect vitreous enamelling and the very thin layer of gilt plating intact .

This ‘whiff’ of gilt plating always disappears as the keyring is used to reveal the bright nickel plating beneath .

It is difficult to date these badges exactly as they had a long period of issue but we are advised by one of our customers in Germany that examples like this one will most probably date from the 1990s – we are grateful for his input.

Over the last 3 years the price of classic Porsche motor cars has risen before finally levelling out -this has been reflected in the demand for original keyrings and original badges like the one mounted to this keyfob to accompany those cars.

It has now become very difficult for us to obtain original badges in good condition like the one mounted onto this keyfob – our aim is to usually have at least one remounted example on offer in this website shop .

Almost all those badges offered to us will have a degree of damage after over 25 years of use.

Even damaged examples being offered on internet auction sites are now selling for relatively high prices.

The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive. SMOSO   00/571   12/21
