    Dave,

    As it is a positive image, I think that makes it a 'Lantern Slide.' I don't know how good the chemicals they used for 'fixing' were then, I would suggest not taking the risk to prolonged exposure to light. Try a polarizing filter, circular polarizing filters are recommended for reducing reflections from glass.

    I picked this up yesterday, and I have no idea what it is. Thoughts? The lower section is very heavy, best guess is solid brass. Looks like a very early AAI logo, and I've never seen this flechette design before.

    Logical, but for what weapon? Almost looks like a 37mm case, but AAI is much later than any that size or shape that I know of.

    Back in the office for a little bit, and getting some files ready for SLICS so that I don't buy too many things that I already have. While loading some pictures I realized that its been a long time since I posted anything, so I thought I'd throw on a couple of pictures of the collection's small arms flechette stuff. Items on the left are all from the SPIW program, each of the three prototype sixty round magazines, plus the 40mm grenade attachment.

    Just saw this thread again, so much cool stuff!

    I thought I would add my only "interesting" flechettes. I posted these on the IAA long ago for ID, and thanks to them they are more than likely from some type of anti-material dispenser (like the CBU-107) and not anti-personnel. These came from AAI, and are about a foot long. The left one may be made of Tungsten or hardened steel, cant tell, the right black one seems to be made of aluminum or another light metal. Pictured with a 20x102mm dummy.
