The James Bond Attaché Case is a vintage toy produced during the 1960s, based on the James Bond series of films and novels.

Background

The attaché case was released in 1965, and is based on the briefcase featured in the 1963 film ‘From Russia With Love’ which included a sniper rifle and a throwing knife.

It was one of a range of James Bond toys produced during the 1960s by the manufacturer Multiple Products Corporation, also known as Multiple Toymakers.

The black plastic case measures 18” by 12”, and contains the following items:

  • A pistol, complete with a shoulder stock, viewing scope and silencer which converts it into a rifle
  • A ‘Code-o-Matic’ code machine, code book and pencil
  • A wallet with paper money
  • James Bond, 007 business cards
  • A passport
  • 12 red plastic bullets

The case also contained a hidden black plastic dagger concealed in the side, a mechanism which would fire one of the plastic bullets from the case itself and a lock which could be set to explode (by firing a cap) if the case is opened incorrectly.

How much is a James Bond Attaché Case worth?

The cases are some of the most sought after James Bond toys from the 1960s, and can be difficult to find with all their parts complete.

In good condition, complete cases have sold for up to $800 on auction sites such as eBay. Incomplete examples such as those missing bullets or money can still sell for several hundred dollars, and replacement pieces can also be found for sale.
