Number hidden by fur (possibly serial): 101040302640

This bear is golden-brown in colour, almost exactly 30cm (1ft) high. There is a number which I think is a serial number hidden on the label, reading 101040302640.
The bear's torso is slightly bloated and its limbs are set at somewhat angular joints. The joints turn with quite a lot of resistance. The soles of the feet are a darker felt, very rough in texture.
The fur is, as stated by the label, 65% wool and 35% cotton. It is fairly soft to the touch.
The feet have stitches of dark thread on them to look like claws.
The stuffing is very firm and isn't easily compressible.
The unshown part of the label reads "Made in Germany by" (then a Steiff logo) "KNOPF IM OHR"

Beyond that, I can't really think of anything else to add unprompted. Thanks in advance to anyone who takes the time to look at this post!
