Some versions of this cube had a triangular gold stickered surface.
There are at least two packaging. One of them is labeled "Wonderful Puzzler"

It is interesting to note that the very first Rubik's Cube prototype was actually a large wooden Truncated Cube.
It is very similar to the "Cuboctahedron" and the "Truncated Trajber's Octahedron", though this one is shallower than those.
This shape variant was mentioned in David Sigmasters Cubic Circular Issue 1 from Autum 1981.
