We produce this classic Triumph TR2 keyfob badge in jewellery quality ‘old school’ vitreous enamel.
The badge is correct for use with 1953 – 1955 Triumph TR2.
Keyrings were not actually in general use whilst the TR2 was in production and we have only ever seen one genuine original TR2 keyring over the last 10 years.
It may be that just one batch of keyrings was originally made around 1955 – a ‘ batch’ would have been just 50 keyrings.
Keyrings started to appear in the mid to late 1950s- so what would have happened in practice is that an owner of a TR2 would usually have bought a keyring to use with their car a few years after buying the car- when keyrings started to become generally available.
When they did become available – keyrings were the de-rigeur accessory to be seen with – so most owners were very soon using them.
What better way of announcing that you owned the fastest British sports car of the lot – than by chucking your TR2 keyring onto the bar in the pub ?
The badge is available mounted onto our teardrop and classic rectangular keyfob shapes and in all of our leather colours.
