Early 73? Later 73 tanks like mine didn't have the strip, it had a checkered flag looking strip downthe centre.
A quick look online shows the aluminium strip model had a central filler with the later type being on the right the same as the Falta tanks

Early 73

Later 73

Difference in backplate colour is painted gold versus how the magnesium discolours over time if left unpainted
The stripe comes up on ebay from time to time
