    How do you know that is an M46?

    Well, I read somewhere (a manual?) that the yellow band is denoting the M46. Is that incorrect?

    I don't know, I've never heard that before. I've seen M46s with that marking, and have one, but generally unless for display there is no marking or external difference between models. Markings (colored bands) and different colors are generally for pattern testing with inert or Phase 1 (live det only) testing. I suppose it might serve a purpose for the factory, but otherwise? Here is my contribution from the Bombatorium. Wide ribbons are M77s.

    Great stuff you got there!

    The one in my image has also an inert fuze (stamped as such separately). So I do not know what is correct now.
