What is this?

Post by pozzytraction » 17 May 2021 01:46

I bought this on EBay from a Russian. He said it was found in a bunker in Stalingrad. It looks like it’s from a radio. But, I can’t seem to find out what kind of radio it’s from. Any help will be appreciated. Thank you, Curt

It won’t let me post a photo, it says it’s too big.

resize it, or save as GIF or JPG

pozzytraction,

to my personal imagination, your "object" is related to a former german so-called "Klappenschrank".

The experts here in the forum will have better answers, for sure... :wink:

Hi,

Looks like the spelling board on top of the Feldfernsprecher 33.

Hi thank you for the help. It’s definitely from a field radio but, I don’t know specifically which kind. It says Ein and Aus so, that means In and Out. Most likely for the wires. It almost like the top of a GI ammo can. Well, thanks for your help kameraden.

Ask Funksammler in the Other equipment section of the Forum. He knows his stuff.
You are in Life in the Third Reich & Weimar Republic section, not much to do with radio's found in Stalingrad, I'm afraid.

Looks to be part of the cover from the radio Feldfunksprecher B.
