    I'm confident that this is a post-war item. A quick look on line shows that a 'Minenzunder DM56' is a post-war design. I imagine that someone on this forum will be able to tell you the year from the codes on the case, one of them probably includes the year. I imagine its relatively modern and not valuable. Useful box though.

    '5-62' might likely be the date, and as Philip says
    it's not valuable really. Hope he didn't buy it as
    a Third Reich item - or at a TR price.........

    "12" is the NATO number for Germany, it is the second "group" of numbers in the Nato Stock Number...all NATO Countries have their own numbers, and some like the US have 2 "Country" codes

    Yes post war German box for mines and fuses still collectable but not worth much

    Thank you all for the answers.

    Actually he bought it without knowing neither he nor the seller what is the production year, but my friend gave for this stuff about 40 $ ,so he will be surely disappointed to hear that
