Perhaps old WW1-era Mark 3 or Mark 4 mines?

The US Mine Disposal Handbook (1945, ca 800 pages covering all kinds of naval muntions) might provide som information as well on this topic.
It's available here: http://www.hnsa.org/doc/minedisposal/index.htm#toc

I have my doubts whether this really is a Greek? The long tail is very distinctive. It could also be the ex - Yugoslav Zmaj?

The picture belonged to a fotoserie in which was also this other image, identified by Aleks as a Romanian Marasti-class destroyer

Hi all,

I found this image on Ebay. According to photocaption, Toulon harbour in 1942. I guess french seamines. Any idea about the model?

From the frenche cruiser in the background it most likely is toulon, however these balls lack detonating devices and the presence of the cables which could be a net next to them as well as the lack of mine anchors I would say that these are the floats for a subarine or anti-torpedo net.
