    The suspension lug is reminiscent of British designs, but the fuze looks like a Jap mortar fuze, and it doesn't have a spinner or safety.

    Japanese fuze
    American body
    British suspension lug
    Russian tailfins
    Strange marking

    Hum, hum, seems to be a famous mix !

    The fuze is definitely a stuffer, the paint job and the tail are obviously not original and not even correct.
    A bunch of US bombs were manufactured with a simple lug on the other side for dive bombers.
