    S-Mines

    Hi,

    I seemed to have started on another collecting tangent - this time its mines, having just purchased a Stock Mine to start things off. What price range would I be looking at for a reasonable quality S-Mine? The next item on my list.....

    All the best

    Justin

    In my experience, Justin, a good SMi35 complete in all internal parts and outer plugs costs easily Lstg 150,-. With original colour, rare years of production (1938-41 and 45) and/or rare manufacturers (RR) it could also easily double.
    But don't dispair, there are also lower priced pieces to find, mostly a little bit rusty and missing the one or other bit but spare parts are sometimes available as well!

    The one JC militaria is selling is a one off over the top price (he is expensive anyway) pity the one who pays that price. The going price as Fuzman and sudelmuk states is the going price for a good one about 100-150. There are plenty about but you have to look. If you find any with missing top det and filler plugs and even the top nut (usualy happens when de-fuzed and made inert) i know a man who makes them with washers.

    Thanks to everyone for their help and advice - your a much friendlier bunch than the ones I have encounted on various car and diving related forums!

    Hi Justin,

    Does the one for sale you have spotted look like this one or does it look exactly like this one?

    cheers

    hi Waff. indeed an amazing similarity, only the fuzes seems to have worsened for the new owner?

    entre nous: I know the guy who purchased this item. but he asked my to keep the secret, because he fears that BMG50 would make fun of him! at least he has received a 10 percent discount for BOCN-members.

    Oops! I must have put the wrong ones on as i had stripped all the lot of those mines for a commission work from one of our fine members in here.I shall post new pics asap..
    Those that i sold were still in good nick for the age.

    best
