Text in original Preserved German Tanks publication:

This example of the PzKpfw III (Fl) is unusual in having towing lugs welded to the front nose plate. PzKpfw III’s from Ausf J onwards dispensed with these in favour of ones formed from extensions of the hull side armour. It does, however, retain other Ausf M features. This may possibly indicate that this vehicle was some form of prototype for the PzKpfw III (Fl) series, or else is an example of a remanufactured Ausf H. It was previously stored at the Meppen testing ground. It carries the turret number “124”.
