An original 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.

It has now becoming increasingly difficult for us to obtain original badges in good condition like the one mounted onto this keyfob .

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 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 .

This badge is in very good condition – most importantly there are no chips in the enamel .

This badge has been used – so the original ‘whiff’ of gilt plating which was applied to new badges has disappeared to reveal bright nickel plating as it always does in the case of used badges .

There is then some wear of the nickel plating over the more exposed areas of the badge – around the metal surrounds of the black stag’s horn designs and along the edge of the badge revealing the underlying copper alloy base metal – this can be seen in the enlarged high resolution listing photos .

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.

The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive .
