I got it today on a militaria show. I paid 50 € for that one and I think it's a very good deal.

Very nice mine, but has wrong fuse. Druckzünder 35 too much pressure required - 60 kg.
Right fuse is D.Z. SF-5, perhaps D.Z. SF-6 or Hebelzünder 44

The S-150 with Druckzünder 35 A/B could also be used as an initiator for larger mines/charges/booby traps. The Germans were masters of improvised explosive devices and booby traps.
BTW, great piece and at an excellent price.

I can tell A-200 has been used with DZ-35A fuse. A guy in the south of France found some A-200 mounted with DZ-35A during excavations on the beach.

Here is an exemple:



Concerning the mine S-150 (made of very thin steel) it's perfectly possible it has been used with a DZ-35B because it could work under a pressure of 30 kilos.

As Bern said: "The Germans were masters of improvised explosive devices and booby traps."

For information:

DZ35 (Type A): pressure 60 kg - 75 kg

DZ35 (Type B): pressure 30 kg

About the S-150 mine, even it's possible to use a DZ35 B, I can admit the best fuse would be the Buckzunder but this one is very hard to find.
