    Strange German concrete mine

    Photographed this concrete mine in a Finnish Engineer's museum recently. They say it's of German WW2 origin. Sorry I have no dimensions but it's bigger than normal Stockmine but too small to adopt an ice mine bottle.
    Known to anyone?

    I would have thought it was a fragmentation sleeve for the ice mine , allthough it could be a locally produced sleeve for such a bottle mine !

    The problem is that it is approximately same size as ice mine bottle - thus no change to have a bottle cast in concrete, concrete layer would be millimeters only and it makes no sense. Further I could not see any glass part inside the top opening.
