Description


You are bidding on a VERY RARE used example of a WW2 German Mauser Miscrometer, used in conjunction with the production of the Luftwaffe Fieseler Fi-103 V-1 Rocket!  This was found at the manufacture facility with the other V-1 items I have listed.


 The Fieseler Fi 103, better known as the V-1, also colloquially known in Britain as the ‘Doodlebug’, was an early pulse jet powered rocket.  The V-1 was developed at Peenemünde Airfield by the German Luftwaffe during the Second World War. The first of the so-called Vergeltungswaffen series designed for terror bombing of London, the V-1 was fired from “ski” launch sites along the French (Pas-de-Calais) and Dutch coasts. The first V-1 was launched at London on 13 June 1944, one week after (and prompted by) the successful Allied landing in Europe. At its peak, over a hundred V-1s a day were fired at southeast England, 9,521 in total, decreasing in number as sites were overrun until October 1944, when the last V-1 site in range of Britain was overrun by Allied forces. This caused the remaining V-1s to be re-targeted on the port of Antwerp and other targets in Belgium, with 2,448 V-1s being launched. The attacks stopped when the last site was overrun on 29 March 1945. In total, the V-1 attacks caused 22,892 casualties.


Made of steel, this Mauser Micrometer dates around 1944, and is in VERY NICE used condition!  Found with the other NOS V-1 parts I have listed, this was used in conjunction with the production of the rocket itself.  There are some marks, scratches, wear, and surface rust, but should clean up quite well!  This was originally in the collection of a V-1 re-builder, who made a handful of complete and functional examples for various museums and private collections (using 90% original parts).  All parts were found at the original production and test facilities.  This is an EXTRAORDINARILY rare piece, and would make a SUPERB addition to any collection, display, or restoration project!
