Nice one, the microphone has been replaced (maybe even the whole handpiece) since it has the green cross. The phone itself; looking at the scheme you can see it is indeed the rarer "no stripe" version so that mic is a no go on this one. Still a nice one, althrough it would not be functional as it should be.
Edit; i havent looked at the dates. Yes, the handpiece is replaced for sure (obviously lol).

It appears to be cobbled together from different parts. The green "stripe" referenced above would appear on top of the left white panel and on the microphone. The little white panel could be used to write notes with grease pencil that could later be erased. The green stripe indicates an upgrade to the electronics. You may be able to test the phones functionality by inserting a battery and testing the handset. Curious to see a Reichswehr era acceptance stamp on a 1937 dated phone. It could be attributed to this being a phone composed of parts that were replaced or scrounged up. NH
