    Picric Acid rings

    Hi,
    Does anyone know what was written (in German) on (around) the picric acid rings that were found beneath German wartime bomb fuzes? I have a few pictures in which I can see the general size and shape, they also have writing around them but it isn't readable in the picture. I am trying to reproduce a replica set to put into a magnetic mine.

    Thanks

    Hi Tony,

    I think this thread posed the same question. I am not sure if Phil (Satan) managed to get the labels printed, but it may be worth sending him a PM/e-mail.
