Confirmation: The first photograph from the Motala Museum is indeed a mine produced for Finland and the second a project of naval mine for...China!

Seems like a type E (C/12) mine. It was also used in WW2 as type EMA.

Due to the construction of the mine anchor this does not appear to be Russian, but the very common British Mark III or one of its export versions. This would make it more likely one of the smaller Black Sea navies or WW I leftovers.

Well, the mines in my photo have a perfectly spherical shape while the British Mk.III is more elongated...

Perhaps EMC German mines, as Natter say. Can somebody translate the text of the image ?

He is correct, I was in error. They are EMC mines. I must have taken too many pain pills prior to the post. The earlier Mk I and II british mines are spherical in shape. I meant the picture to show the differences between Russian and other mine Anchors. My error.

It's an anchored influence (magnetic) mine: EMF.
