German S43 Anti Tank Mine

This is a restoration of an original S43 anti tank mine. The upper metal portion including the handle appear to be original condition with much corrosion, as would be expected. The lower appears to have been fabricated and has a wooden insert into which two "anti-tamper" fuzes have been screwed. Although a valiant effort, the structure of this restoration is incorrect. The fuzes should have screwed into the ends and the holes on the side are lifting holes. Nevertheless the top is original and nicely marked with original sand coloured desert tan paint and stenciling remaining. A very uncommon item, even though the Germans employed thousands of these in North Africa.
