    U.S. butterfly wings
    Just because I'm ignorant on the subject, I have recently seen a set of butterfly wings in good shape at a gunshow, no bomb or fuze just the wing and they were marked wit a T# that I dont rember. Any way to the point the fella wanted $60.00 for them was that a good price?
    A snip at $60.00 I'd say, probably much rarer this side of the pond though. I'd snap his hand off at that price!!

    Sorry about the mistype. The fuze I have is a T49E1, early version of the M131 fuze as Steve mentioned earlier and is listed on the documents I attached.
    No worries HAZORD. Thats a very nice fuze you have - direct copy of the German 70B I beleive!! anti-disturbance.

    I'd agree with Kev on that, $60 really is very good indeed.
    Kev you've started a great thread here - you keep asking all the questions I was going to ask, keep going with the questions!
    Oh and thanks for all the answers guys, good stuff.
    Dave.

    Butterfly your timing is a little off, I'm just finishing packing to return to the NL. Someplace I have some photos of very early M83s and fuzes from Picatinny with dates and lot numbers, you will have to remind me later this weekend.
    US-Subs - you asked to be reminded of this post, any joy with the early M83 pics?
    regards

    I may have spoken too soon - having the photos is one thing, finding them is another. So far here is one of the bomblet, thought it was dated, but afraid not. It is interesting though, that both designations are used on the submunition.

    OK Butterfly, I've found one set of the fuze photos, but damned if I can find any others. Saw them just before I went home.... I'll let you know if I trip across them. JO

    (No panic with things, don't fret if you can't find them, I was only reminding you because you asked me to. be good to see whenever.)

    Very nice photos of an early M83, could you tell me what the colour scheme signifies? Is that typical of early M83's or is it for training purposes?

    thanks for posting

    Not sure, it was in the storage area at the former Picatinny Arsenal Museum, they had no information on it.
