Perplex Mod 2

Pistol Perplex Model 2.

“Scheintod pistole”, meaning “that puts you in a state similar to death. ”

In fact a miniature cartridge of 12 mm diameter containing.........tobacco dust!

Very nice cartridge resembling a small hunting cartridge, with brass cap, green or red cardboard tube printed in black “SCHEINTOD D. R. G. M.”

Bernhard Paatz of Zella Menthis, identified by the monogram BP, was the manufacturer of this gun in the 1920s.
