The value of original car key rings is increasing rapidly – particularly in the case of key rings which were produced for prestige marques.
ORIGINAL JAGUAR KEYFOBS from the late 1950’s & early 1960’s can sometimes now command prices of several hundred pounds each if in good condition.
Buyer beware of imitations – particularly on internet auction sites. The seller will generally post a very sketchy description together with just one (often very professional) image. Here’s a few originals from our own collection :-
Values of original ASTON MARTIN keyfobs like those from our collection are also rising sharply. Imitation Jaguar and Aston Martin keyfobs are always to be found on ebay. You have been warned!
A very rare keyfob for MGR-V8 ( only around a hundred were produced for supply with cars exported to Japan ) recently fetched £ 425 on ebay.
We are fortunate to have the following example in our reference collection :-
We wonder what our original BUGATTI torpedo keyfob from the late 1950’s would be worth if it was it in mint condition?
A very scarce late 1950’s leather key pouch in mint condition originally supplied with PORSCHE 356 was recently listed on US ebay.com with a starting price of £2,500 – and it sold!
AND YOU THOUGHT OUR KEYFOBS ARE EXPENSIVE!
