Hi, My name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you. Yes the cuck coo clock is real the "DGMS" 126 653 was a variant of the more common DRGM. Both referred to Gebrauchsmuster patents, what in pat-speak are called "utility model" patents. They're for technical improvements (they're not e.g. design patents). DRGM 126653 was enrolled on 20. November 1899 for C. Werner in Villingen. I hope this helps you.
