    WWI Aerial Bomb for Identification - in USA

    This device is being offered in the US market, and my meager bomb skills are not able to identify it. May I request your help?

    Looks like a practice bomb(M38?) tail with a home made nose(or the body removed and the original nose moved back, such as it was).

    Yes Slick, I think you are right ! It's a 100 lb practice without body !
