    1952 Tungsten Core

    Just picked up this tungsten core today. Weight is 8.0 lbs (3.636 KG), it is 6.7" (170.8mm) long and is 1.892" (48.05mm) in diameter. The info on the base is pictured. Does anyone have any info on this core? By the lot, I'm thinking U.S., but out of what? Apologies for the pictures being rotated to the left. Thanks, Bruce.

    Thanks, Jeff. Anybody positive that it's 90mm? It outweighs the 105mm HVAPDS-T's coresby a good two pounds, which is why I'm asking. Thanks, Bruce.

    Absolutely positively a 90mm HVAP core.
    Dimensions match mine exactly.
