as you might know all known Arnold split beetles and boxes are marked with 'Made in Western Germany"..

I recently discovered and bought an original Arnold box with 'made in Germany -US Zone"-marking! see picture.
The use of "made in us zone" officially stopped in April 1947..... Some toy manufactuerers used it a little longer, but Arnold officially started producing the Arnold splits in 1952.... So, big mystery?

Has anyone seen this before?
