    Its NOT a German WW2 s-mine UB , 35 OR 44 model, it looks more like the Italian version maybe ? A better picture would help !

    It's an Italian B4 Tree mine. The other side has protruding spikes like a bed of nails, to be pushed into a tree trunk. The thin sheet metal cover on the left side would conceal the tripwires that are made of colored thread on wooden spools. There is a thread here on BOCN that shows it.

    Try here:

    Thanks guys, quick and accurate response as ever! I don't own it and only got this one Pic of it. It was really annoying me as to what it was. Cheers.
