MB slat W-2032972 photo

Nice photo of an early MB slat W-2032972, low windshield, long hold down catch. I bought this on eBay and thought I would share.

Maybe someone can estimate the serial number and DOD.

This is just a guess, but maybe an MB delivered in early December ‘41 in the low 103XXX range?
