I was very fortunate yesterday, picked up some very nice pieces. First was an inner-body assembly for the BLU-97 combined effects munition. I already have several examples of the full up munition, it is nice to get some internals for display. After that was one of the nicest BLU-24B/B submunitions that I've ever seen, with the plastic skin intact and flawless. finally (for this thread, see projectiles) an early M83 Butterfly Bomb with unusual markings. This one came with no fuze, but is marked with T11 SOSS. I do not know what the SOSS stands for, and I have never seen a T11 marked munition. Prior to this the only T numbered submunition I had personally observed was a museum piece marked T45. It seems that there was one posted here at one time, but I have not yet found it.
In addition the body of the submunition is marked as Lot 5, while the wings are marked as Lot 6. A very nice piece that I was very happy to get.
