Photo Albatros B.II

Hello



Currently on ebay at :


https://www.ebay.de/itm/Foto-Deutsch...AAAOSwRfNeKWIT


is a photo of an Albatros B.II B.883/??



Given the early style fuselage cross I am tempted to assume that it is B.883/14. Also noteworthy is the unusual style of marking on the tailplane.


Finally, also unusual is the serial itself as the nearest known serial number is B.882/14 of the LFG Roland built batch B.870/14 to B.882/14 or B.872/14 to B.882/14 according to source. Would anyone have seen any other source for the existance of B.883/14 or indeed B.884/14 as I've seen no assignment for that serial either.


Regards,


Clint
