But, no mark is visible on our example. So, our example was either not marked or the marking got worn off from use. Ing Otto Hollerer on page number 109.The length is 8 1/4 inches. The current height of the front of the barrel is 6 1/16 inches. But, the barrel would raise considerably higher (possibly to as much as 9 inches) when the gears would be working properly to elevate it fully. The diameter across the circular base is 4 9/16 inches. The weight is an impressive 2 pounds 8 ounces. The gears are currently not fully working.
They may need some oil & or some adjustments. The little turn nut on the left side is old but not original. A small wheel on the right side which would turn the base around on a cog wheel is broken & partly missing.
The toy would have originally screwed on to a base which is now missing. Some components at the back end of the barrel are missing. Various other components of the toy are also missing.The toy is not capable of firing or propelling anything. The all original paint shows considerable wear from use. But, lots of the original dark green & black paint remains present. The barrel is darkly toned from age & use. The circular base has light to medium rust on a number of areas.
Some other surfaces of the toy have small insignificant areas of a little light rust here & there.
