I'd say SD 500 ("oroginal" variant with no additional suffix letter).

On the other hand, in the 2nd picture we have a very nice example of an early colour marking of a bomb type, where the identifying colour is applied to the whole tail cone. I've never studied it closer, but it seems this scheme was introduced in 1940 (apparently already after the Polish campaign) and was changed to longitudinal stripes probably not later than in the spring of 1941.

Hate to disagree, but in the second picture the packing crate is labeled"SC 500" under the fins.

Hi ROLAND1369,

I think Grzesio identifed the first image as a SD 500, not my second image....

On the other hand, Can somebody identify this ?? Maybe Luftmine A (LMA) or Luftmine B (LMB) .... :?

German SD50 bomb and ABB 500 bomb-container recently found in Finnmark, Norway (source: Norwegian Armed Forces, via https://www.nrk.no/finnmark/skulle-fjer ... 1.13687910 ).

Well preserved, due to being recovered from a fresh-water lake.

Judging from the two rows of screws fixing the tail cone and the letter B visible on the body, it's the SC 500 B.

Image 1: I think SC50-SD70

Yep, SC 50 or SD 70... But if we assume, the bright tail colour is an extensive variation of bomb type marking (what, however, may not be the case), they are most probably SC 50.

Image 2: SD50 ??

I'd say so too.

Image 3: I think SC50-SD70 and SC250 bombs

I think the smaller ones are SD 50, as division lines between warhead and tail fairing seem to be visible on their cylindrical sections.
The big ones are SC 500, I think. There are two rows of bolts at the connection between the warhead and the tail cone and the distance between the rear fuze pocket and the tail cone seems to be pretty substantial.

Thank you for your answers, Grzesio

I am not sure about your identification of the my third image as SD50 ...although the image is not very clear and it is difficult to ensure.

Here another three images from Ebay taken in Spain 1936-39:

Image 1: I think SC250
Image 2: I think SC50
Image 3: I think SC50 and SC250

Can you confirm my identifications ?
