NOW SOLD – sorry this keychain has now been sold and can no longer be ordered
An original Porsche keychain which came to us from USA – so we would assume that it is US made .
The badge itself is in excellent condition with vitreous enamelling .
The key clasp is also in good condition but the bright gilt plating has rubbed with use – there would only have been a ‘whiff’ of this applied in the first place .
The badge itself measures 1″ x 1.5″ ( 28mm x 38mm )
The knurled nut on the key clasp unscrews to allow the nut to slide down the clasp so that key(s) can be fitted .
Difficult to put an age on an item like this – the white top band on the Porsche crest did disappear with the advent of the impact bumpered 911s in 1973 but this badge did tend to carry on in use by some accessory manufacturers into the 1970s and 1980s .
The badge is in vitreous enamel so it must have some age – any keychain like this produced in the last 20 years would probably be in modern resin based enamel .
Our feeling is that the keychain could have been produced in the 1980s – but we could be a decade out either way.
The keychain in the photos is the actual one which you will receive.
When it has been sold this listing will be cancelled . 00/56 02/21
