    I think M56 lids usually had the decal on the left side, other than that i can't comment!..
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Thanks, this is what I suspected. Anyone else have any insight?

    Very nice example, I was not aware that the M-56 had a decal so this add's more interest to this and other examples like it

    A bit late now, but indeed - the decal should be on the left side. Besides, this one looks too "new". Is there a date-stamp in the shell? The decal was worn, out of the top of my head, up to 1961.

    Besides this Tricolour, there were M56's with a VoPo emblem, too.

    For a regime that despised the Nazis, they certainly drew a great deal of their uniform from the third reich
