Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a totally original WWII German produced inert Schützenmine 42. It measures approximately 5 ¼" x 4" x 2 ⅛". These are very hard to find, and most examples are ones that were never put into use. However, this example is one that may have seen actual service, and definitely shows signs of service and being buried in the ground. It was possibly never armed properly, but for some reason it was able to be recovered from the ground without detonating. It then had all explosive content and fuse removed. NOT AVAILABLE FOR EXPORT.

Condition is good but it does show age and weathering, with the finger joints at the corners showing separation. There is also some delamination of the plywood bottom, which would have been the most exposed to moisture. Most of the small nails that hold on the top are still present, though they show oxidation. Still, this is definitely one of the best condition examples we have sever seen!

A great chance to pickup a nice piece of WWII history!
