We are not licensed by Rolls Royce to reproduce the Rolls Royce logo and none of the keyrings listed here for sale in this website shop feature Rolls Royce keyfob badges with the Rolls Royce logo which have been made by us.
The keyrings in this listing are original vintage CUD torpedo keyrings dating from the late 1950s or early 1960s.
We have recently received a number of these original Rolls Royce torpedo keyrings which were produced in the late 1950s or early 1960s.
As we have a number of them in stock we are able to offer them at this incredibly low price.
Similar original Jaguar and Porsche torpedo keyrings in this condition now routinely change hands for colossal prices well over 10 times the price of these.
The torpedo keyrings in this listing have red vitreous enamel badges and we are also listing similar keyrings from the same source with black enamel badges ( unless now sold )
These keyrings are new old stock and have been in storage for around 60 years !
Goodness knows how these things can remain hidden away for a lifetime finally emerging 60 years after they were made.
The keyrings are in mint condition having never been used. – and the contrast of a red enamel badge on a black keyfob just cannot be bettered.
The nickel plating on the badges is perfect & the translucent red vitreous enamelling is as fresh as the day it was fired almost 60 years ago.
The badges are mounted onto torpedo keyfobs in genuine black leather embossed ‘Real Morocco Made in England’
‘Morocco’ was a term used for goatskin at the time and the fine grained pebbly texture of the leather shows that this leather is indeed goatskin.
No maker’s mark is visible but the keyrings were made by CUD ( Castles Unit Developments of Castle Gate Leicester )
No other badgemakers at the time were producing torpedo design keyrings .
The quality of CUD’s products is already legendary.
Superb original keyrings correct in every way for use with any 1950s or 1960s Rolls Royce motor car.
How many more of these Rolls Royce torpedo keyrings have survived in this condition ?
Probably only the ones that we have listed here.
When all these keyrings have been sold then this listing will be cancelled.
