Text in original Preserved German Tanks publication:

This King Tiger is believed to be the only one in the world in running order. It carries the turret number “233” and has taken part in some ‘Carrousel’ dynamic displays. It is coated with Zimmerit anti-magnetic mine paste. It was restored using parts from a number of other vehicles, and its batteries were generously provided by Varta. [Preserved Tanks in France: Number 75].
