Jackpot 👍 Early version. Diamond jaws.   What is the build date of your car?  They switched to oval jaws later.

No, somewhat unusual.
In fact, I hardly saw it before.  If convenient, add a couple of pictures.

Really?,  I thought these were the early versions? Is the "Mercedes-Benz" stamp the strange part? 🤔

Well, at least unusual...
I enclose a couple of images of Heyco 300 "diamond shape jaws"
One actually has the same M-B text stamped in

Couldn't let mrfatboy get ahead of me on this. I checked what I have and sure enough, one had the "Mercedes Benz" stamped in. Picture included, with the original wax paper wrapper... 8)
