Very nice, is the other coastal gun made by Marklin?
I like it thanks for showing it
[QUOTE=duska;1356385]It does look pretty much the same as the Marklin AA gun #8056 in this 1930 toy catalogue.
Thanks for that, I really had no idea who the manufacturer was. And it does confirm my original theory that it was meant to be an AA gun. Others said it was probably a deck gun.
Now about the latest acquisition... any idea's?
