Toy company founded in Denmark in the late 1920's.

Tenko originally produced very high quality tin plate vehicles, trucks and model cars that rivaled the best of Germany's.

During WWII, restrictions had forced Tekno to quit using tin and changed their processes to produce models in diecast.

The company ceased production in 1972.

I have a very old Tekno mercedes benz 300 SL that was given to me by my father 22 years ago. It was made in Denmark. My father was born and raised in Denmark. He is deceased. I know he has it for many years, but I don't know how old it is or what it might be worth today. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you Eileen
