    Hi Mad.
    To me it looks like a postwar American bombtail for a 250 or 500 Lb Gp bomb. If you have more details please let me know.
    Any Live or Dug ordnance shown by me has been disposed of by military EOD personnel .

    This should be tail T127E1 for a bomb 500 lb. Difficult to say from such a picture.

    I know one with the lot-code from the year 1965.

    It's difficult to judge it from the picture - dimensions would be useful. The T127E1 (M128) Fin Assembly for a 500 lb had a length of 32.65 inches and a diameter of 13.65 inches. The same basic shape for a 1000lb bomb (M19/T142 Fin Assembly) had a length of 46 inches and a diameter of 18 inches. This tail doesn't look that big.
