    It was purchased from an arms dealer in USA 1966 or 1967. The condition today is the same as in the photo. It is part of my collection from WWII and has been identified as Finnish made k/39 ATG 47mm. It was manufactured at the Tampella factory on March 27, 1942 and has all numbers matching. It is unique and rare, and is interesting since it does not have a protective shield around the barrel as most ATG usually have. A brave crew indeed!
