You are bidding on an EXTREMELY RARE and BOXED example of a WW2 German Wehrmacht Panzer Zündgerät Cannon Firing Button (5  D 73  940), as used in almost every Tank and Tank Destroyer!
  This dynamo switch, when pressed, would fire the main cannons mounted inside the tank or armoured vehicle.  It was usually located at the side of the main gun, for easy access to the gunner.  it was installed as either an emergency firing button (in-case the electrical system failed), or the main firing button.  Used on the Tiger, Panther, StuG, Hetzer, Panzer 3/4,  Sd.Kfz. 251/9 (late) and others!

Made of bakelite and steel,  this button is in AMAZING unused condition!.  Though there are some slight marks and wear from storage, there are NO breaks or damage, and is 100% fully functional!  The wiring is 100% intact, and it retains 99% of it’s original finish!  Also comes complete in the original box!  I have indicated it’s location in the last photos.  As these are VERY RARE, most museums and restoration projects have reproductions installed  Would make a PERFECT addition to any collection, display, or restoration project!


Please email me if you need additional photos or information.

——————- TERMS OF SALE —————– 

Most of my items are vintage, and as such are AS-IS, so you must therefore expect a degree of wear due to age and/or usage. I will describe each auction to the best of my knowledge and take as many photos necessary to ensure you are pleased upon receiving your item. All sales are final, so please make sure your questions are answered to your satisfaction before you purchase.


——————- ABOUT ME —————– 

Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft (Fw190, Me262, etc.), as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. As a private collector myself, I am constantly on the lookout for historical memorabilia, authentic photographs, artwork or anything unique relating to military aircraft.
