German Druckzünder 35 Push Igniter

Here are two examples of the D.Z. 35, one prewar in brass and the other mid-late war in aluminium. These were used to fuse makeshift land mines or booby traps. They required between 125 and 150lbs of pressure to fire. The brass one is marked for Gebr. Brehmer Machinenfabrik in Leipzig-Plagwitz and dated 1938. The late war one is coded DWX for Schmöle & Comp. in Bad-Salzungen.
