    I picked this up today.
    Its obviously fairly old but is not what it seems at first sight.
    Its solid metal.
    It is very well made. The "fuze" is made from the same solid piece of metal and is not a separate item from the body.
    The stamping on the fuze is very odd
    The 4 x small holes on the rim are the same as the very unusual early 41 fuzes (see post 187 above) BUT The "70" stamping cannot possibly be correct as the 70 fuzes were only made in bayonet fitting not screw fitting. Also 70 fuzes did not exist, they were either 70A, 70B, 70B1 or 70B2
    It has stamped "AZ" and "ZEIT" which would be expected on a 41 fuze either side of circle that may be there to represent the switch.
    The arming spindle hole is too small to accept an arming spindle from a standard SD 2
    I don't know what the remainder of the markings mean.

    My opinion is its not a fake. By the look of the markings someone obviously had access to information or specimens of SD 2 fuzes but why would such obvious errors be stamped onto the object?

    Perhaps it is some sort of educational object made soon after the first SD 2's were dropped and there wasn't ready access to specimens. Someone has obviously gone to an enormous amount of effort to make it.

    Thoughts anyone?

    Dave.

    It definitely looks period and from the typeface of the 4, certainly British. The Germans almost invariably used an "open" 4, while the British used a "closed" 4.
