Hi Daz,

It looks like it US and from the 50's from your foto.

Hope it helps a little Mad B)
Hi Daz,
I can not find it in my books only with straps around it and if it is from the war it wil have a 3th lug for Uk planes i think 2 lugs for Us planes and 1 lug for uk planes. Or look at the tail unit for stamps in it.hope it helps.

Cheers Mad B)
G'day Daz,

I have posted some pics and info, which show how similar your 100-pounder looks compared to the WW2 type practice bomb. The two lugs in your photo look like they are welded on. In the wartime manual the bomb has three suspension rings attached. These rings include the lug and tightening screws. As Mad has already suggested the rings are either for American or British use. Basically these rings are slipped around the bomb and then tightened by two screws on the opposite side of the lug.

I'm thinking 90% that it's a 1950's production model.
