Looks like the photos and diagram of the Minenbombe SC-250 in my copy of GERMAN AIR-DROPPED WEAPONS to 1945, by Wolfgang Fleischer

It's clearly a SC 250 or SC 500 bomb of the quality class III (separate nose ogive), two rows of bolts fixing the tail section identify it as a variant B. Fuses are sadly invisible, but I think it is the SC 500 B, as there are four bolts between the fins, while SC 250 bombs had only three.

By the way, I've made a simple comparison of the SC 250 and SC 500 shapes (but not sizes, SC 250 is smaller, of course).
It can be seen, they are very, very close. SC 500 is just a little bit stubbier, but the difference is so small, I think it's just unrecognisable in the photos.
The bombs are very hard to tell apart if fuse pockets, bolts at the tail cone or markings are invisible.

Thanks for your information, Grzesio.

Any idea about my image posted on 24 Feb 2022 ?

Here, another image from Ebay. I think SC500 and SC500J bombs. Is this correct ?

They look like SC 500 J.
In the last photo there are SC 500 indeed, variants B and J.

Thank you very much for your answers, Grzesio.. :wink:

Here another image from Ebay. It is difficult to ensure the exact model of the bombs...

Hi all,

An image from Ebay. According to photo caption, Spain, during the Civil War.
I think probably SC50 bombs

Hi all,

Another two images from Ebay. I think probably SC-SD50 or SD70 bombs but I am not able to read the inscriptions on the first image....

The first photo was already presented in post #670, they are SBe 50 C II. ;)
The second photo seems to show early bombs (fins without reinforcing ribs), their bodies seem solid, hence most probably SC 50 or SBe 50.

Great photo!
The bomb is actually quite mysterious, it is the Flam C 500 (mirrored marking can be seen stamped on the lower fin), but it differs significantly from the well known Flam C 500 C, which has an axial HE container. Judging from the paint scheme, it seems, it's an early (non C) variant of the Flam C 500.
