FS (maybe): a 14-inch bundt, not sure what I've got here

Got something here, I'm not sure if it's as valuable as silver or as worthless as a plugged nickel. An indie Benz shop owner offered me $40 for it yesterday.

It's an attractive spare tire on a 14-inch 6Jx14M2 or H2 bundt, I found it yesterday in the spare tire compartment of a 1979 280CE. The bundt carries a 108 part number. It looks like it was used exactly once. The jack and tool roll were there, alongside it, and they too look like they were used only once. But, this bundt might have been painted --either that, or else the MB factory did not do a perfectly smooth job of painting it themselves. Some of the inside stamps definitely look oversprayed. I can't see any paint edge though.

It's for sale, if the price is worth the effort to ship it, with or without the tire (which still holds air). Let me know what you think.

While I have your attention...on another bundt I have, a chromed one which came with a snow tire when I bought my 300D, --I haven't looked closely at it til now-- I just noticed that one hubcap carries a 107 part number. This hubcap is awful ratty though. Chrome on the bundt this hubcap is on hasn't peeled but it's ratty too, has many corrosion drops. I can barely make the bundt's part number out through the corrosion, but it does begin in 108. Is this ratty 107 hubcap, or the ratty chromed bundt it's on, of interest?

The first one you got looks "new". On STD or PP I think someone was buying these up for $75 plus shipping. Check out Lasaran's posts on this. That should give you some leads on valuation. $40 is low ball.

I actually used it to pull a battery tray and some door items from this 280CE, and have been wrenching around on my own 300D with it. The wrenches are exactly right for the nuts on the Benz and so are the screwdrivers. It's all ergonomically perfect for my hand. So I think I'll keep it. Unless someone puts a gun to my head and/or throws $200 on the table.

There is one for sale right now on eBay for $75 +12.50 shipping, but it's missing the screwdriver handle and its two blades:

Mercedes Benz 240D 300D 300TD 300CD W123 Tool Kit OEM Very good condition 280E | eBay

and another, for $113.64+shipping, which has one additional tool which mine lacks, I'm guessing it's a tire-changing alignment aid, but I could be mistaken:

MERCEDES BENZ,SEC,SALOON,TOOL KIT,W126,W124,W123,R107,280,300,380,420,500,560, | eBay

Yup, that's what it is all right, here's one:


The tire alignment aid was probably rolling around in the trunk loose, since the tool roll was in with the spare tire which looks like it was used exactly once.
