Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is genuine 1940 dated German WWII manufactured Tellermine transport frame designed to carry two mines. It was compatible with the Tellermine 35 (T.Mi.35). This example is in good solid condition but has seen some corrosion and wear. It is marker marked WG. The hinges to open the doors are frozen and we've no attempt to break the free, one of the latches is still functional. Could be a very good restoration project or just keep it for display as these are much more rare than the mines themselves. These double carriers were intended for use with Panzer divisions and on other vehicles, they would be secured to the side of the vehicle and had a carry handle for ease of use. Carriers such as this are exceptionally rare.

The Tellermine 35 (T.Mi.35) was a German metal cased anti-tank mine used extensively during the Second World War. The mine's case is made of sheet steel, and has a slightly convex pressure plate on the top surface with a central fuze well. Two secondary fuze wells are located on the side and bottom of the mine for anti-handling devices. For use on beaches and underwater the mine could be deployed inside a specially designed earthenware or concrete pot, which acted as a waterproof jacket for the mine. Pressure of 400 pounds (180 kg) on the center of the mine or 200 pounds (90 kg) on its edge deforms the pressure plate compressing a spring, and breaking a shear pin which holds back the spring-loaded striker. Once the striker is released it flips downwards into a percussion cap which fires the adjacent detonator followed by the booster charge and then the main explosive filling of TNT.
