It says number three from 1938.
Wasn´t the Raffay car the third of the serial production from 1939?

So the description has the wrong year or it is an other car.

Yes, I believe it is.

I have seen other pictures of the Raffay '39, claiming that it is #03 from 1938.

A close up would be good.
Has the front hood a sharp corner?

Compared with split behind there, the hood seems to have sharp corners, but as said, the resolutuion is too low to judge properly.

I'll try to get upload the close ups later, but they don't show the hood corners

This other two pictures are in a different topic in this subforum, supposedly the same car.
