This is a vintage Goebel chocolate Labrador Retriever dog engraved with the series mark CH 616 and the year 1968—the date indicates the year the mold was made. It is the logo that is the determining factor of the time period the actual piece was made. It has the Goebel mark of the bee inside of the V right next to the words W. Germany. Above that is a w. with the word Goebel. The "G" in Goebel is written in a fancy font. This mark is what collectors call the trademark 4 (TMK-4). The mark was used between 1962 and 1971.

Germany below it. It is the logo that is the determining factor of the time period the actual piece was made. The logo this dog has is what collectors call the trademark 5 (TMK-5).
