A very rare SD Studios replica of the 'From Russia With Love' Attaché case has appeared for sale on eBay. The asking price is $30,000, for what some call the holy grail for Bond collectors.

SD Studios Attache Case From Russia With Love for sale

In From Russia With Love, James Bond receives a black attaché case from Q, loaded with gadgets that save his life during his mission. The case includes hidden knives, gold coins and .22 cailber bullets, a talcum powder case that releases a gas if the case is not opened in the proper way.

The original prop case used in the film was based on the design of an attaché case by Swaine Adeney Brigg.

In the 1990s a series of replicas of the Bond case was produced by SD Studios. These replicas includes many of the gadgets seen in the movie From Russia With Love.
