See the last page of new R. Jurga´s book - Fortyfikacje III Rzeszy : http://bunkry.cz/knihy/book.asp?action=detail&id=z058

There is a short article about Kugelstands.

Why is the top of the newly rescued Kugelstande different from this one from Darłówek? Were there different types of this construction?

The one from Bobolin was found on testing site for fortfications so this might be non combat example used for tests. It looks different than combat ones: doesnt have ring for MG, mayby it was version used as shelter only?

The last one looks a bit different as shown in wartime manual but looks OK with proper ring for MG.
