very interesting.....but with Zündschnuranzünder 29 as shown on the pics nick posted it makes no sense.....the blue cap 4,5 sec delay makes more sense.....never saw a SS PzHandmine with this kind of fuzeholder on the top before....and i saw a bunch of them last years

It is still the same, grenade could use two kinds of fuzes, only time fuze or combinated time / impact fuze. Another pics of body without fuze.
body with charge 205gr. TNT/RDX
marking " flf 43 " Vossloh-Werke GmbH, Werdohl i/Westf.

I have only those sheets :
Source - Sprengschule Dresden


and from US manual OP 1666 11.june 1946 page.324......HOLLOW CHARGE GRENADE
(STICKY TYPE)
DESCRIPTION. The grenade consists of a tapering steel body containing the hollow charge
with a flat sticky pad at the nose covered by a press-on lid with a small handle . The base of the
grenade is fitted with a tapering fuze adapter terminating in an internally threaded hole for an
igniter. This hole is covered by a black plastic plug in transit. It is presumed that the standard
egg grenade igniter is used with this grenade employing a 41/?-second delay and used with a No. 8
detonator. (See fig. 289.)
REMARKS. No information is available as to whether this grenade is thrown or placed against
the target . It is possible that it may be lobbed for short diststances .

Why are these called Panzerhandmine SS, were they only used by the SS? Is there any photographic evidence that the SS really used these?

The SS-weapon's academy invented the HL-Handgranate that was also often referred to as the SS-Panzerhandmine.
The weapon proved rather unsuccessful and unpopular.

Thanks. So do you know if they were ever used in combat?
