    WW2 German Anti lifting device S.M.1

    Having a online chat about a Anti lifting device box for the S.M.1, most probably an early version of the S.M.2. Has anyone seen a S.M.1 or have one.

    Hallo,
    I'm interested in the subject for a long time and I have never seen or even heard about an S.M.1 I'm not even sure about the real meaning of S.M. It could be "Sofortzünder metallfrei"(Instant-fuze metalfree)This antilifting-device originally was named E.Z.44 (Entlastungs-Zünder 44). The designation E.Z. SM2 only appeared later. Then, towards the end of WW2 a new model named SF 3 appeared. These two, the E.Z.44 and the S.F.3 are the only german "Entlastungs-Zünder" that I know of. By the way, are you shure the printing on the box is S.M.1 ? Could it may be be S.F.1. This is a chemical pressure fuze for the "Topfmine". Full designation is "To.Mi.Z. SF1"
    regards,
    Bellifortis.
