German WWII Schu-mine 42 Shoe Mine 1942
New Made Item: The Schu-mine 42 (Shoe-mine), also known as the Schützenmine 42, was a German anti-personnel mine used during the Second World War. It consisted of a simple wooden box with a hinged lid containing a 200-gram (7.1 oz) block of cast TNT and a ZZ-42 type detonator. A slot in the lid pressed down on the striker retaining pin, sufficient pressure on the lid caused the pin to move, releasing the striker which triggered the detonator.
An excellent reproduction of this scarce German WWII all wood antipersonnel mine. Designed to hold 200 grams of he this plywood box with hinged cover which, when trodden on, activated a detonator protruding through a hole in the side of the box.
Measuring 4" x 5" x 2 1/2", when loaded and weighed just over one pound.
Almost impossible to detect because of all wood construction. Offered empty without explosive or detonator this casing bears replicated Waffen amt and makers codes/dates for added reality.
Nice dovetail construction, just what you need for your office desk.
