Porsche – original vintage late 1960s/ early 1970s new old stock melsom products keyflix keyring – collector’s item

An original vintage new old stock Porsche keyring which will have been produced in the late 1960s or early 1970s.

We have just this one example of this keyring to offer – when it has been sold this listing will be cancelled .

A very rare keyring – very few can originally have been produced and this is only the 2nd or 3rd example still with it’s original leather keyfob which we have ever listed .

This keyring is in new old stock condition and has probably never been used .

The vitreous enamel badge has Melsom Product’s details on the back and is mounted onto a keyfob in genuine tan leather embossed beneath the badge with Melsom’s trademark ‘Keyflix’ name .

We do very occasionally see similar keyrings in black leather but with the name ‘RAYDEK’ on the back of the badge and think that in the early 1970s Melsom Products ceased trading and briefly became ‘RAYDEK’ before closing permanently .

In the 1960s & 1970s almost all car keyrings were made in England – it was quite an industry .

With Porsche cars being relatively rare on British roads at that time not many manufacturers bothered to make a Porsche keyring and those that did only made them in limited numbers.

Melsom Products was the most prolific English manufacturer at the time producing many thousands of car keyrings for other makes of vehicle.

Porsche themselves did not have their own keyrings produced at that time – the very well known ‘heubach’ keyrings did not appear until the late 1970s or early 1980s.

This keyring is original & correct for use with any late 1960s or 1970s Porsche motor car including 911 & 912 .

We are also offering other keyrings with this same badge – but those badges have been restored and are mounted onto new leather keyfobs.

Those keyrings are not genuine original items like this keyring.

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