Default Beton Schützenmine 43

Hello

Just to share my last addition to my collection. I have the lid for a use with a ZZ42 fuze but unfortunately it's not in good condition. I am cleaning it. Il will post some pictures later.

The lid is very corroded unfortunately even after cleaning. I can't do any miracle with it but I presume you know it's a rare item even in bad condition. I will send some pictures in the next days.

Is your metal lid the one that covers the entire concrete body?

The one I have has a wood cover (sort of link a schumine) and then a metal front portion that covers the fuze.

Very nice!
Even though it is in a bit rougher shape, it is still very rare. Good catch!
