Text in original Preserved German Tanks publication:

This PzKpfw I Ausf A was dug out of the ground by workmen building a new stretch of road at Bad Tölz in Southern Bavaria in April 1984. It had the serial number 9035 and was supposed to have attempted to stop the American advance into the town at the end of the War, before being scuttled in a nearby lake. It was apparently in good condition but became damaged in the recovery, and there were fears that it would be scrapped.
It has, instead, since become part of the collection of the Munster Panzermuseum, having come via temporary storage in the Koblenz collection. It is now known that it was built in the Krupp Gruson-Werk at Magdeburg in December 1934. In 1935 it was used as a driving school vehicle (without turret) at Kraftfahrlehr-Kommando Zossen (later Panzer Regiment 5). At the start of the War it was part of the PzErsu. Ausb. Abteilung at Bad Tölz. It was restored by the German Army Workshop 860 at St Wendel during 1987 and 1988 with the assistance of Kurt Fischer, a panzer veteran, who restored its transmission and other parts in his farmyard. It arrived at Kampftruppenschule 2, Munster, in 1988 and now carries the turret number “112”. It is in running order and has taken part in public displays.
