I came across this from tin toy hunting and had no IDEA of it's size since at the time of it's purchase, the seller never gave a measurement or sense of scale. (And I never had the sensibility to ask about it's dimensions). I do not know much about this example of this tin model, except it is a Post War Re-Construction toy built during the Soviet occupation of Germany. That it has 'plastic' wheels on two pin axles. The axle ends are pressed to hold the wheels in position. If anyone knows anything else about this item, please COMMENT as I know this particular segment of the market commands prices that are in line with larger scale 1/64 and 1/43 scale toys. However, I am not sure what is the scale. This example is truly unique since it came off the assembly line mis-centered in the lithographic printing. See picture two. The size is truly represented by picture four against the US nickel. If anyone can tell me more about this car, it would truly be appreciated.
