This is one of my favourite second series models. The chassis price alone when the actual car was first produced in 1911, was 485. By 1915 its power had increased and so had the cost which had risen to 565. Even so, many of these elegant and fast cars were sold. The 'Prince Henry' refers to Prince Henry of Prussia, who was an avid motor sport fan.

The beautifully detailed large spoked wheels suit the vehicle perfectly. This model is quite easy to find at anything between 10 and 40. The model with a copper petrol tank rather than the more common brass is very rare so expect to pay more than 100 for this issue.
