    Identifying 88 projectile / fuse

    Who can tell me a little bit more about this 88 projectile / fuse?

    The paint is not original. The fuse most likely a wrong type.


    Next to another 88.

    For ground use You could also get AZ 23/28 fuze.

    Dont get entangled in the tracer conversation too much :-)

    That type of fuze was mainly used on 7,5 cm rounds, like the one in the attached picture

    The shell you are showing is the 8,8 cm Sprgr L/4,5 (Kz). It is the type with the screwed-in base plate.
    The stamps are somewhat difficult to read.
    41 kam 50 a?. These are the production stamps of the shell body. Year of manufacturing 1941; kam (= Hasag Eisen-und Metallwerke GmbH, Werk Skarzysko-Kamienna); Lot 50, series a?.

    FES = Sintered Iron driving bands.

    13 Sk 5.44. These are filling stamps. 13 = code for the explosive filler = amatol 60/40; Sk is the code for the filling station; 5.44 = month and year of filling.

    The early shells with the screwed-in base plate have a HE charge in a cardboard container which was inserted thru the base of the shell body. Later on the explosive was poured in, these shells were marked with a + in black paint on the ogive indicating that the screwed-in base plate was sealed with magnesia-paste.

    I think your shell is of the poured-in type, because the cardbord containers were always filled with pressed TNT which had the explosive filler code 1.

    Below drawings of the two different shell types with the screwed-in base plate.

    Do you think this zunder/fuse is correct?

    The l Igr Z 23 nA is not correct. Should be a ZtZ S/30; ZtZ S/30 Fg; AZ 23/28 or AZ 23/28 (Pr).
