This is an authentic, "R" stamped, ORIGINAL, Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow (also fits early Silver Spirit example), (1965 - 1980) of the most famous mascot in the world, the Rolls-Royce, Spirit of Ecstasy. Finding a LOW base example with the "ROLLS-ROYCE LIMITED" stamp around the base is VERY rare. (MUCH more common on the high base versions).Finding a LOW base example with BOTH the "ROLLS-ROYCE LIMITED" stamp around the base AND the "R" (Registered Trade Mark) stamp is ULTRA rare. There are FIVE versions of the standard Silver Shadow (and early Silver Spirit) Mascot. The ONLY difference was to the base under the feet. Low base under foot, without the "ROLLS-ROYCE MOTORS LIMITED" stamp around the back of the base.
Correct for mascots used on cars up to about 1974. Low base under foot, with the "ROLLS-ROYCE MOTORS LIMITED" stamp around the back of the base.
Correct for mascots used on cars between about 1974 and 1975. Low base under foot, with the "ROLLS-ROYCE MOTORS LIMITED" stamp around the back of the base AND the Registered Trade Mark "R" in a circle, stamp. High base under foot, with the "ROLLS-ROYCE MOTORS LIMITED" stamp around the back of the base.Correct for mascots used on cars after about 1975. High base under foot, without the "ROLLS-ROYCE MOTORS LIMITED" stamp around the back of the base. I understand that these were produced under licence to Rolls-Royce after the main production of these cars had finished, as official Spares. ALL the above variations for this series were made of solid polished Stainless Steel (as is this one). The mascot on sale here is the very short-run and therefore, rare version, version 2 in the list. Size: The mascot is 4 1/4 tall (the correct size).
This version of the mascot is ultra rare, as it is early enough to still have the lower/flatter base, but late enough to have the Rolls-Royce STAMP which only became a fixed feature after 1974 on this style of mascot AND one of the very limited examples that also had the "R" stamp. Condition: Excellent, very near MINT. I expect most sellers would describe this as MINT. This mascot comes fitted to a nice, hollow, polished alloy, trophy mount. Suitable for use on all Rolls-Royce Silver Shadows and most Silver Spirits etc.Note: While someone has added a threaded bolt to it, the original isosceles trapezoid shaped fitting is still intact, so this mascot could be re-attached to a real motorcar if required. Mascot (only) size is: 4.5" tall (11.5 cm), its width at its widest is 2.5" (6.5 cm) - as it should be! IMPORTANT Your satisfaction is my number one goal.
