Great vintage catalog page! Marklin also sold the 1/43 Mercury's in Germany (I think)

The Mercury 1/43s were also pictured in their 1960s German catalogs...

The page I have uploaded Karl is actually only one half. The other half has some of Mercury's 1:43rd scale range. There are a few more Mercury 1:43rd's mixed in with Marklin's then new 1:43rd scale range and a few of Marklin's 8000 series commercials.

I also have a box like yours Karl.

Cheers Chris

It was Mike but Marklin never made a small scale metal die-cast range of cars. Their HO series were plastic.

The Speedy series were part of Mercury's range.

Glad to help.

Cheers Chris
