    I assume it was made for export; seeing as it's marked Germanyicon and not Deutschland.

    The action looks similar to a Gew 1888 or a Mannlicher, but scaled down in size.

    "...marked Germanyicon and not Deutschland..." Being marked with a country of origin is an American thing as I recall. Hence the English.
    It seems Herr Boker made or sold a lot of outdoorsy stuff. Knives, air rifles and shotguns too.
    There's a U.S. Civil War US Model 1860 Light Cavalry Saber on Guns International. Gives us an approximate date he was working.
    Spelling and Grammar count!
