Hello,

Somebody know which shells the pieces come from? Perhaps of 9.45" German shells?

Do the marks on the shell fuze indicate a date of production? Thanks for info. Regards, Marc

Hi Marc,

what you have is the baseplate of a large German shell.

The copper thing in the center is the fuze, a "kz. Bd.Z. 10" which means "kurze Boden Zünder 10".

They used this fuze for their 21, 28, 30,5, and 42 cm shells.

Arjen, thnaks for the info.

Somebody an idea what Sp17 would mean? Is that the year of production to the fuze.

Kurze Boden Zünder 10? What would mean Zünder 10? Thanks.

Hi Marc,

sorry, don't know what Sp17 should mean.

"kurze Bodenzunder 10" => Zunder is fuse (ontstekingsbuis ;) 10 is year of the model.
