Thanks Andrzej. Can you please tell where the Panther-Stahlbunker "number 15" was taken? (East?)
greetings Lars

Thanks Andrzej. I was a bit confused because of the low number on the Stahlunterstand, but of course there is no reason to assume that the stahlunterstände were installed in numerical order.

Here is a double number - 63 painted in factory and 24 by hand. Interesting - in similar style as 15 in previous posts

Thanks herring, I knew that picture, but I didn’t notice that the Stahlbunker has got two numbers. Maybe the small “63” is the factory serial number and the larger “24” is a local [Westwall?] numbering system? In some original German files, the Panthertürme in the Westwall were individually numbered (e.g. P15).
On other pictures one can see that the four sides were lettered A-B-C-D, probably to ensure that the lower and upper parts of the Stahlbunker were joined correctly.
