It could be a post WWII Piece but if is was made just after the war there would be something that said "American Zone, British Zone or French Zone" It could have been made in the 60's or 70's is threre anything on the bottom.

This is not die cast, it is lithographed tin plate.

It is probably from the 1950s or early 60s, and part of a play set. Possible manufacturers: Biller, Heinrich Wimmer, Hammer & Kuhlwein. "G-E" on the plate - could it be Gama? Gescha? Less likely: Arnold, Distler, Schuco, Tipp Co. These last four makers are known for their larger and well-detailed toys.
