    WW2 German Incendiary Bomb

    Gents,

    After a long search I have added my very first German WW2 Incendiary bomb to my collection.

    Its in nice original shape & fins are still attached. it shows just a wee bit of handling wear.

    Fuze is solid to the body & im not going to attempt to unscrew it as not to ruin it/mark it up.

    I found it locally (here in Canada) from http://thecanadiansoldier.com/ This was my first deal with this site/seller & it was 100% painless. Much thanks to Kevin for the great deal.

    Photos below are from Kevin page (thanks ) i will post more showing the ink stamp on the fins.

    Enjoy

    A beautiful item.. here are my 2 rough & ready ones, never been cleaned { As you can tell ! } With similar markings, the top one is dated 1936 lower one 1937 both AZ 8312* The lower one has interesting ' Hole ' !! Liberated from a neighbours recycling box , seriously. Some people haven't got a clue.. Could do with a fin if any body knows about one laying about....

    The hole is because somebody just got to it as it was igniting and managed to extinguish it in time.
