Clearly a late 251/9 but note the DAK insignia :o

Good find. I saw that photo once or twice a long time ago. It is a vehicle captured and on display in the USA (I forget where) and I also remember that markings except for the DAK palm are original. It has probably been restored since that photo was taken.

edit - Found the reference - it was taken in 1946 at Fort Knox with this text:

The original unit is the 20nd PzAufKl Abteilung, 20th Pz div. WH-1808565 is the original number plate, tactical marking 417. The division was destroyed in May 1945 east of Prague.
