Original Vintage & Restored Leather Keyrings for Classic Cars & Motorcycles


Triumph TR3, TR4 etc – original vintage late 1950s/ early 1960s shield keyring – collector’s item

NOW SOLD – sorry this keyring has now been sold and can no longer be ordered

An original vintage Triumph keyring which will have been produced in the late 1950s or early 1960s .

Just this one example to offer – when this keyring has been sold this listing will be cancelled.

A very rare survivor from the late 1950s or early 1960s  – almost all similar keyrings will by now have been lost or discarded when the leather fobs finally fell apart.

We do occasionally come across these shield badges but almost always without the original leather keyfob – this one is complete.

Occasionally one of these badges crops up on a vinyl keyfob – there is one currently in this website shop ( unless now sold )

The keyring is in very good condition for it’s age with a vitreous enamel badge bonded onto a nickel plated shield mount which is in turn mounted onto genuine dark tan leather keyfob also in a shield shape .

It is incredible how much trouble went into making these keyrings all those years ago .

Keyrings for cars did not come into general use until the very late 1950s/ early 1960s and very few original keyrings were produced specifically for TR3 & TR4 .

In that case owners would probably have been using keyrings simply with a badge with the Triumph logo on like this one – and Triumph keyrings produced at the time are very scarce.

This keyring is original & correct for use with any 1960s Triumph motor car including TR3 & TR4 – of which there were many thousands in daily use on the roads at that time and in need of keyrings.

This keyring has many more years and many more miles left in it yet and would be a very valuable addition to any Triumph car of the period.

The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive. SMOSO   00/59   02/22
