Cabinet Information

Apparently, there are two different designs. There is a slight detail in the vertical panel the spy lady holds a dagger in her hand. Written on it is the slogan Meine Ehre Heisst Treue german for my honor is faith. This slogan is missing on one version, perhaps the version intended for the german market A dagger like that used to be a special military honoring. The slogan was later abused by the Nazis, so it could have been deliberately removed from the game in order to avoid legal problems in Germany.
