    El ZtZ NUMBER 9

    Not a bad example of the ZtZ time delay fuse

    for the shr-500 shrapnellbombe (i think)

    Tiny traces of red paint are on the body.

    Hi Phil
    There are often various variations on the fuze , it looks as though this one may have been stamped by hand rather than machine , if the waffenampt stamp is no 123 its the inspector from Rheinmetall Borsig
