Victorinox - Schuco Limited Escort/Mercedes set

This set contains a Victorinox Escort and a Mercedes Picolo model car. The set is limited to 1000 pieces worldwide and is distributed by Schuco, not Victorinox, so actually it's a Schuco collectable, but let's be honest... it looks awesome... The company Schuco is founded in 1912 by Heinrich Muller and changed over the years many times from owner. Finally in the early 2000's the company was bought by Simba Dickie toys and try to uphold the same die cast quality that made Schuco famous with collectors... The tin box has the Schuco logo pressed and the Victorinox logo painted on the lid. The small model car is weighs a lot an is made of one solid casted piece of iron. The set was released in 2003 and every now and then you find one on Ebay, but it's getting hard to find one in mint condition...
