Well I don't think anyone can answer your questions because no one knows much about this subject. Actually that's probably just me. :roll: If you could show me some good references maybe then I can help.

And so here we go!
They are FAB-500sv (welded body, actual weight ~450 kg), prewar version, probably early production of 1931-32.

SC 50 or SD 70 with Geraet Jericho - one cannot tell, as colour marks for bomb type are invisible.

Another image from Ebay: heavy bombs. SC1000 or 1200
A puzzle, especially because of simple cruciform fins. The stripe at the tail cone looks dark, so I'd look in the SD class - SD 1800 maybe?
Another image of a german heavy bomb from Bundesarchive:
Probably an SC 1000?
These two posted on 15 Jan 2011 15:09 are SC 1000 as well, I think.

Image
An SC 250 at the left, a bunch of SC 50 or SD 70 with Geraet Jericho at the back, two Bd C-10 clusters (for five SC 10 each) in front of them.

- Wolfgang Fleischer: Deutsche Abwurfmunition bis 1945 (there was also an English edition "German air dropped weapons to 1945";
- Karl Pawlas: Munitions-Lexikon Band 3;
...and last but not least...
- TM 9-1985-2 German explosive ordnance (bombs, fuzes, rockets, land mines, grenades and igniters).
