Hello Bob,
Thanks for the confirmation.
Is it late 1918 or mid 1918 according to the serial number?
Nice addition to my collection.
Me happy!
Greetings

Geerste,

The highest Heine serial number that I have recorded in WW1 is in the 35,000 bracket so yours in the 33,000 is likely to be in the last few months of the war, but this is an assumption on my part. For example Heine may have allocated batches of serial numbers to a range of props and made some out of order, perhaps as a priority. I don't think they did but until I find their day book recording each day or week's production in some German museum, that's as close as I can get.

But you've got a marvellous prop for your collection!

With kind regards,

Bob
