any one who,s femiliar with this handcart...
i took a picture from the internet,
got an all identical to this one coming in.
just the cart, not the stuff on it
has the original brass manufacture plate on it, made in THUN switserland in 1916
seems germany also used these carts during ww1

infact i,m looking for a museum ore privat collector who might be interested in this
any leads would be appriciated, thanks, john.


edit... : just found out that the term handcart aint exactly right, seems these were pulled by a mule ore donkey. ore pulled behind a motor ore vehicle
thats what the internet says....
