    Hello, in France, the price is 60 €, with 3 parts of glass. The only problem is the postage with glass....

    Was it round? I mean the mine. I'm asking because sometimes possible to mix russian one (rectangular shape) with the german one. Russian one is not so expensive of course.

    The price depends on how complete it is, and if all the parts are original. The Glasmine 43 consists of 5 parts (not counting the detonator or the demolitian blocks), and the pressure plate come in four different colors being clear, greenish, light brown or dark brown.
    The Glasmine consists of three glass parts; the dish, the pressure plate and the shear plate. It also has two metal parts being the igniter plate and the saftetyfork or igniter. Rare examples use the To.Mi.Z (Topfminenzunder42) as ignitor, which is much more indetectable. If a Glasmine has one of these ignitors it will reflect on the price.
    I bought a Glasmine 43 some yera ago with a dark brown pressure plate in Belgium and payed 50 euros. I must say the shear plate was post was made. I was told a bunch of these mines were found in Germany some years ago during ground works, and many of the dishes and presure plates got sold with new made shear plates, as these are fragile and many were broken.
    200 pounds does sound a bit over the top, but if it is a complete Glasmine with all the parts there and original, maybe even with a rare Topfminenzunder42 ignitor, and the two original Pioneer rods for under the pressure plate. I wouldn't be supprised if it sold for that money. If its just the casual mine without the metal parts I would saay it is way to expensive.
