Exclamation Buck zunder added to the museum.

Joy of joys!!!!

You guys/gals have no idea how happy I am right now. This BUCKZUNDER is so incredibly rare!!!! Due to their fragile construction they just don't last if they were left in the ground & they are so fragile that they don't often last period!!!
So adding this to my museum collection is a milestone for me.

To the person whom I bought it from (you know who you are.... I'm forever in your debt..DANKE!)







Enjoy.

GLEN

Excellent piece! Great to see an original in such condition, my replicas i make are near exact to this example, which makes me quite pleased with my efforts.

Hi Glen,

Very happy for you but are you sure it's so 'rare' ?
Because, even me, I've got one ...



Regards

Bruno,

That Hebelzuender in Field Grey is very nice. All of mine are in Ordnance Tan.

Can you tell me the makers mark on the lever if there is one?

Merci.

Glen

Hello & Bonjour Bruno !

Very, very nice display of fuses in amazingly good condition !!

Great to see those.

Glen is right, almost all Hebelzünder "over here" are tan as well.
Rarely seen in grey like yours !

Thanks for showing,

Ferdinand

Hi Glen,
As soon as I can find in which box under which box is this display, I will get a look and tell you if there is any mark on it.
Have a nice day
Regards

For Bruno:
That you "also" have a Buck "missing in action" fuze it doesn´t means that it is a common find... in fact it is a fuc...ing fuze to find, I have never found one in that condition in all my years of collecting, it is the only fuze missing from my Glasmine collection .

To load photos from two and two is very slow... maybe it is time to enter in the XXI Century and can load photos in bigger quantity in one time???
