Hi Madis,

Depends what do you want to know?

For a start see a attached pdf.

Where did you find them (in Estonia?)?

 

summary-of-german-electric-fuzes.pdfUnavailable

I find them(during metal detecting) in Estonia, they were buried in the forest ! 
 

I would like to know the meaning of the markings and colors 

 

As I know there aren’t any 🧨 explosive,(no detonator).

Therefore I decided to pick them up !

Where the heck have you been, Are things all ok now, good to see you back

Hi Davejb, yup it’s all safe and sound ! :)

I won‘t pick up anything dangerous. 

Anything that is not 100% sure of safety must be considered dangerous.

Here was German forces !

 

  • 1941 9 July: Valga is occupied by German troops.
  • 1944 19 September: In the course of heavy fighting Valga is liberated from the German occupation of Estonia. It is immediately replaced by the Soviet occupation of Estonia

Nice find! Great condition considering how you got them.

Thanks ! 
 

Sandy soil preserves pretty well as my practice is.

 

These German ElAZ fuzes are actually part of a big finding. It was intentionally buried ! 

These were the only safe things, so I dared to take them with me.

Late to the party,its been bonkers at work.  Nice selection there. i see 17A,25 and a 28 amongst. The 28 is used in anti shipping as has a slight delay. The 17A is a long delay type. Not bad at all. Well found

Hi Madis,its a type 15 impact fuze. Yours is with its transport cap. The later versions did not carry as much info. If you gently prise it off,you should see that the batch number(15b) will match the number next to the charging pins.

But they might be not so well preserved as these

Didn’t fit well yet, locking ring inner part is a bit rusty, but I think after little cleaning it fits (lack of time 😟) 🙂

Best to put in derusting solution. It’s the inner ring you have, The outer have threads on them to lock into the fuze picket
