My 63 Dormobile came with two original logoed keys. The spare is on this
small keyring with a steel tag stamped with the VW logo and the bus's
VIN. Is this the original factory key tag?

I believe those came with the car from the factory...sometimes the dealer gave them with the car, sometimes not.

Others will know for sure - is this correct?

I believe there is a thread on this. I tried looking for it, but I came up empty handed. I think Lind was discussing it actually.

Thanks for that.

So it is the original factory key tag. Cool! Very Happy It's the only one I've ever
seen and I've owned about 30 ACVWs.

OK, I have one that is a part that virtually all of your buses came with
new, but I bet that very few people even know of its existence.

the tag that came with the original keys. it is like a carburator tag (which
is somewhat rare in its own right) but thicker, and with the VIN number
and a VW emblem stamped into it.

I have one around here somewhere. I will get it scanned when I dig it up.
for now, here is a factory picture:
