I may be able to get one of these German M24's and check off an item on my list that I've been after for a while. I also know there are convincing replicas out there too. I think these are original though, as the canisters have clearly been pried open (and unfortunately it appears some if not all were touched up with paint afterwards) for explosive removal, the stamp font looks okay, the porcelain pull tab ends look correct, etc. But, prudence dictates I would do well to get the confirmation of my peers, and so I post them here for your perusal and opinions please. I think I'm particularly interested in the two with the aluminum colored end caps.
I wish they had gone in through the fuse opening instead of prying open the canisters, but otherwise these look like they may be excellent examples.
Thank you for look at them!
