ID. Help: Antique/Vintage Chocolate/candy bunny mold with stamped numbers

Large chocolate bunny mold, made out of some type of metal. He's about 8.5" tall X 9" widest part. 

There are stamped numbers on both pieces.

#313 The first number 3 was stamped weird, with part of the "3" turned. SEE PHOTO

#1 appears on both pieces of the mold. In addition, I believe I see a #4 stamped very faintly and smaller than the other numbers. However, this could be a just a coincidental scratch from the clamps, I'm not sure.

Is the number 313 with the odd stamp "3" a mistake or a hallmark stamp of a specific chocolatier? 

I know nothing about these molds, and didn't realize how collectible they are. I just liked the way it looked and the story I was told from the seller. Her grandmother brought it here from the Netherlands (I think) when her family immigrated to the US, way back when.

Thanks for any incite!

Hi,

   I believe the number is 813 not 313. I have a pewter ice cream mold from Germany with what I thought was 5818 but turned out to be 5813  but realized that the three had a small top and a larger bottom and the eight was the same size top and bottom.

Thank you!

I've stared at this thing for a long time... turning it and everything! The first # has a side ways 3, and the 3-8 actually doesn't have the complete figure 8, although in the photo it looks as though it does. I'll have to get it out again.... LOL! 

Thanks again.

I might try the library. I know there are books that explain the numbers and makers marks.

I hate listing items when I don't know the history behind them.

Thanks again.
