    Default Frommer Baby

    Today I got a Frommer Baby sn#352142.
    Condition is not the best, but it was a bargain. So I have to take it.
    Can anyone tell me the year of manufacture. Mid of 20's is this correct?

    According to Broten, 7,65 Frommer Babys, in the serial range 351105-353553 were post World War I Hungarian Military.

    It appears that the stamp on the left trigger guard is Hungarian military. A detailed photograph would be helpful.

    Your early to mid 1920's manufacturing estimate is likley correct.

    You made an excellent find. Frommer Babys are rare in the US.
    Thanks

    Thanks Jan for the additional Info.
    It's good to know, that they are rare birds, so I can live better with the condition.
    Attached a pic of the proof mark.

    The trigger guard stamp is the Hungarian Military acceptance stamp.
