Here is a second shot with him leaning on my pet rock. I named him Topplethrax because he topples forward without weight on the tail or something to lean him back just a bit.

 

There are markings underneath one foot. Either:

-OR-

G 8 5

 

(If it is a G, it is a G in a circle, like the copyright symbol.)

Thank you @BlazingTornado !

 

I bet that Tgh is a “T S R” with sections of the characters faded off.

 

So, this dragon is: A Red Dragon

 

And: A Larry Elmore Dragon

The figure is based on this ^ art according to the link BlazingTornado found.

Stability/ability to stand didn't appear to be a  priority in the very early stuff from the 80's. It's a cool little Dragon though

You were expected to pin it to a base.  Most of those old metal models required pins to stay together and/or stay upright.

A lot of the joins were entirely because it was the easiest points to cut the mini for casting them.
