Hi everybody,

I just wanted to show you what a customer of ours brought to our place the other day: A German Zeppelin Bomb, probably from 1910-15

Any experts on Zeppelin bombs here by any chance?

I trust it's been defused & the explosive contents removed.

Hi

This looks like one of the Karbonitbombe produced in various sizes, that varied in weight from 4.5kg to 20kg, by the Karbonit AG firm. They were used to the end of 1915 replaced by P.u.W. type bombs.
