    WWII German Mortar Fuses for 81mm and 50mm Bombs

    I have seen photos posted before of aluminum and bakelite models but never the steel version. So here are two of my steel examples. I have several other very rusty ones, and I suppose that is why there are not many that have survived. Or, are the steel versions all over Europe?

    There are sheet metal (W.Gr.Z.38C) and solid steel (W.Gr.Z.38St) versions.

    May I request that someone post an image of the solid steel fuse?
