German Wehrmacht Schu. Mi. 42 Schützen Mine 42 Complete Set, A Real German WWII One, Inert.
This is the Real Deal, not post war, not other country, not a copy, of course, etc. Very hard to find them, only possible when some are discovered in an old barn or farm, because if they are found in the ground.... Better don´t touch them and call the Police. I always get them with no parts, then I complete the set with all the parts it has to have: One explosive block that is a nice reproduction, (of course), made with a wood block and waxed paper, (this one has a thread under the label for screw directly the fuze, but I leave this option to the buyer). One bakelite adapter originaly used to screw in these explosive blocks, (and in the round ones used in the Beton Mines), then the Sprengkapsel Nr. 8 and the ZZ42 fuze were fitted in. I have had these mines in black, in brown, with paint/treatment, without it, with markings, without markings... Late War stuff was a little bit chaotic. I assume painted ones are early made, at the end of the war they were unpainted and unmarked. I presume this example is an early one as it has some kind of brown/red paint all around the body in the outside. The nails are still in place, but the wood covering them is missing a little part, so you can take the mine in two parts, but, as you can see in my photos, this doesn´t affect the display. Buy with confidence, all what you read is only the true. Very hard to find them, only possible when some are discovered in an old barn or farm. And, of course, all parts empty and inert. SUPER NICE SET!!!!
