    What is this??? Incendiary fake?

    What is this? The tail is fine but the 'aged' body and engraved date, plus the 'base'?

    could be an E 24 or E 31. both were experimental incendiaries (thermite). This one is in the best shape I have ever seen of these
    any live or dug ordnance shown in my posts was dealt with by EOD personell

    Doesn't look like the body is magnesium,looks more like an alloy pipe with a brass fitting at the nose.Note at the tail,it usually blends up to the body diameter,this one the body seems to fit into the tail.
    I'm not an expert on these but looks a bit 'put together'.
    Possibly a training aid??.
    Still ,at current price about average for a tail!

    Just wondering why, if it was a training aid, it has '1940' engrave on it.
    It's very odd.

    I've posted a possibly similar item a year or two ago, a training item made in the US by a youth group during the war. Mine is made of wood and painted to match.
    All dug or live ordnance shown in my posts is under EOD control and has been or will be dealt with accordingly by EOD personnel

    Could be a shill bidder bumping up the price but getting cold feet.

    The nose part has the two holes like the regular AZ fuze, but so much about this puzzles me and doesn't look right/looks odd:
    -The blatant date on it
    -no other manufacturing marks
    -the steel body - how would it burn?
    -the odd nose 'fuze'

    Here is the link to the US made trainer I mentioned. Clearly no relation, but there were a number of locally manufactured items for training, not necessarily a fake. The other possibility is that it is something special, and only 2 people recognize it?

    It's described as Home Front/ Civil Defence

    Great Britain

    So looks like it is being sold as a training aid
