Material: Pressed Tin Toy with Friction Motor
Here's a toy that I've taken so for granted over all the years I lived in Nuremberg and saw box after box of these at toy shows (over 25 years ago) and never bothered buying one..........
Last week I was looking for some 1960's Wiking 1:40 Beetles for sale online, when I found this beauty by mistake, a near mint boxed CKO #394 beetle *version one* Tin Toy with a Friction Motor which was made from ca. 1958 to 1966.
The toy is well known in these versions:
Lime Gold Metallic
Dark Green German Polizei/Police
Bright Yellow German Bundespost
But funny in all these years of seeing the #394 beetle I NEVER saw it in Blue Metallic a Kellermann color mostly reserved for their Porsche 356A Coupe. ~ This is a very uncommon color for this toy.
Well, it is nearly perfect mint and has the original box with just a flap loose, I was really happy to have found this one.
I found this privately from a Antique dealer online and I just received it in the mail today...............
I looked all over here at KM.DE to find a nice write up or a thread on this toy and sorry Gentlemen I could not find one. So I hope that you don't mind I share this hard to find toy (in America it is hard to find) with everyone here.....
