This was for sale recently as being from WW2 U-48.  I have cleaned it and can now clearly see the markings on the rim - 16; K and 55.  The discolored plastic of the stand is very similar to a piece of HMS Hood's propeller the I have which dates to 1930's. Also given that it was for sale in UK it makes me wonder if it is more likely to be from SM U-48 that was sunk on the Goodwin Sands. The deck gun was removed for display on land

Attached pictures of the markings on the cog.


Das ist im Hinblick auf den "16"-Stempel nicht unwahrscheinlich. Schön dass sich offenbar ein weiteres Teil eines dt. WK I - U-Boot erhalten hat.
