Marklin 8003 Mercedes 300 'ADENAUER' issue. Very dark green. Near mint/boxed. Another very scarce model from The Berlin Collection.
The official car of Konrad Adenauer,the first Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany. In office from 1949 to 1963, he employed six custom convertible, hardtop, and landaulet versions during his tenure.
This deep green issue has a most pleasing lustre, with a shining silver trim, untarnished spun wheels and supple original tyres.
A little marking to the bumpers and a dot or two to the paint finish.
Fresh, crisp and vibrant box is clean and complete. Tear to a small end flap and a very small tear besides. No graffiti. Minor age wear besides.
A difficult model to find in any condition, and especially with its box.
