Question Bavaria train tower

BAVARIA TRAIN TOWER

Made out of tin?
16" high.

Won it for 99 cents.
Plus $15 to ship.
Still I think I got a piece of some kind of history.

He had it listed for $9.99 with a reserve, no one bit.
He then listed it for 99 cents with no reserve, Ed took the hook, I put a whopping bid of $1.66....no one bid but me. (sucker)?

SOLD AMERICAN....$16 bucks.

I AM WONDERING WHAT IT IS?

Look at the pictures it looks like there is some kind of lever for something and on the platform there is something that must have mounted up there to go with the lever.

ANYONE KNOW WHAT I GOT?

I just paid for it and have to wait for it to come.

You paid about $1.66 more than I would have. I have no idea where it came from, looks like some kid made it in his basement.

I got it for 99 cents. My top bid was $1.66.

I can't understand why no one else bid?

I think it is rumored that Hitler used this on his O gauge layout in the bunker.
You......are just jealous of my Bavarian piece of history.

Looks cool, let us know what the stamp on the bottom says. Maybe it signed by Stephen Sauvestre?!?

It looks like it's missing pieces. There are a couple of holes where something should be attached. What does that lever do?

A copy and paste from my first post,

Look at the pictures it looks like there is some kind of lever for something and on the platform there is something that must have mounted up there to go with the lever.
