Hello Carimar,
I suggest the registers were wrong, this is one of the two ex-DDGHansa vessels Liebenfels or Wartenfels, the other one being ZHAN DOU75. I compared her to original pictures of Liebenfels and Wartenfels, the hull had not changed, only masts and bridgehouse are of newer date. The US standard types of 1920 looked much different !?
