We have just a few of these original old stock badges to offer mounted inlaid into our keyfobs in black hide as shown in the photos.
These vitreous enamel badges were made by Melsom Products of Birmingham UK in the 1970s. Some badges which they made would have had a metal loop on the top of the badge to allow the badge to be mounted onto a keyfob by means of a leather hinge.
Others ( like these) were manufactured without a loop and could have been used on a flat surface such as the car dashboard or even inlaid into the top of a gear lever knob. The badges in their original 1970s sales packaging are shown in the photos.
We have adapted these badges to inlay into our keyfobs by means of removing the original adhesive and soldering an oversized brass plate to the base of each badge and then laminating the baseplate within the keyfob. No chance of the badge ever falling out !
The keyfobs are then bonded rather than being stitched as Ferrari used to make them in the 1970s. The main difference is that we are now able to use rather better leather bonding agents than Ferrari had available to them in the 1970s !
The result is a contemporary styled keyring with a difference featuring an original badge which can be used for any Renault car.
When all the badges have been used – then this listing will cancel.
