Found this.. Check the wear and tear! Anyone any idea what gen car had such keys? When did the first keys appear in a Mercedes?

Looks like a regular post-'77 key with some home-made reinforcement added to cure their notoriously weak plastic, which used to allow the metal part to burst out through it.

That key has seen some serious action - do you have the vehicle it is from?
