What I’m running, not a Leafs fan.
I can remember that my grandmother always had the current DAV keychain on her key ring. I'd have to go out and dig though the file cabinet in the shed to find the ones that might be called old.
Dog tags, I have my Dad's from WWII, but not my own!
Key fob? Fob key? I'm so confused. Kinda cool though.
OK, I’ll play.
Here are a few from the same dealership: a couple of them are more than a few years old.
This came with my 31 cabriolet keys.dont know if it's considered a fob or not.car was last registered in 1977
I have collected a few over the years and use one in all three of my hot rods, In fact I use one for my house keys also. I have given several to friends but here is what is left.
Really like the rotary dial telephone fob !
License plate topper & key fob from the same dealer and my tiny collection.....

My key fab was a dealer give away. The head of a key is cut for a pocket knife that you keep as a spare key. I had my switch re
wafered so it fit. Gary
Cannot post pic, but have the one from the Dealership where my '57 Fairlane was bought new. Purchased at Guy Motors ( salesman was Terry L. Massingale ) 1110 S. Main Street Anderson s. C. No area code - Phone # 225-4151!
The key came with the fob, giveaways at the 1933-‘34 Century Of Progress World’s Fair.
I found these on Etsy. 4 for like 12 bucks. I got two tan and two black. They don't make noise and don't "clang" against my metal dashes.
I've got a few, I even bought a Studebaker one about 3-4 years BEFORE I even thought about getting a Studebaker. Now I use it for the Lark wagon.
Here's a few:
Here's my small collection: the Pennsylvania Turnpike fob is from1946, the GM Motorama fob is from '56, the Buick Retail Store one,'48, the Horseshoe Hotel & Casino one has a '59 penny, the two Everett Horton Sunoco ones ('51 pennies) I bought from one of the station's former owner's descendants at a yard sale.Anyone who has driven much on the Pa. Turnpike has probably stopped at Breezewood. The Horace Mann School for Boys fob is my favorite.Another yard sale find, I bought it from the widow of the guy who went to the school. It still exists, as The Horace Mann School, an expensive prep school ( tuition for pre-k thru 12th grade over $52,000 per year (yes, that's 52 thousand)). It was called The Horace Mann School for Boys from 1914 till the 1940s
