Not a trailer expert but isn't the data plate mounted in the wrong place for a trailer?

Yes it is on the wrong side and it looks to be one of the cheaper reproduction data plates. It does not look like a Robert DeReuter plate. Incorrect wheels and an M100 style lunette. Just a side note, Bantam didn't start production of the T3 until August of 1942. :)

Maybe the seller can empty it out and take some good pictures of it and a close up of the data plate. The floor and rear panel are always points of interest to a buyer.

I tried to delete my last post but was too late. I had forgotten the DOD on my Bantam was 2-18-43, not 2-18-42, I was having a senior moment, sorry.
