However, an original model list by Reinhold Merkelbach accurately dates this design to 27 January 1922 as the date it was taken into production. http://www.museum-digital.de/rlp/index.php?t=objekt&oges=1238
The model was produced in 1/2L, 0.3L, 1/4L and 0.4L versions and has been sold by Merkelbach until the end of 1953.
