Full information IRTP. Same design as common IRTP gold/green cone, but an olive drab color instead of normal metallic gold. Is this an intentional variation or simply an even paint discoloration due to moisture? Since a number of these olive drab variations are known, it is possible that a real production variation. It is unlikely though that these were intended for WWII distribution since still have the IRTP statement instead of "Withdrawn Free" and Tivoli not renamed Altes until after the war.
