L000890 INCENDIARY BOMB (Inert/Deactivated).
Roughly 35cm tall, 5cm diameter, cylindrical machine tooled, natural pot metal alloy incendiary bomb with field-grey painted, magnetic sheet metal tail piece. Separate tail piece has three extended fins and an opened circular cap bottom and is secured to the bomb body by three dome headed rivets. Natural pot metal alloy body shows fine horizontal tooling lines and has a 2.5cm wide horizontal recess with six small drilled holes near top edge. Bomb is profusely marked with assorted, impressed numerical and letter designations.
-Note: Note: The alloy nosecap indicates this is one of the B1E versions of the bomb as opposed to one of the B1.3E versions which had steel nosecaps. The lack of a circular groove around the circumference of the nosecap indicates this is either a B1E or B1EZA version of the bomb as opposed to a B1EZB version. The B1EZA differed from the B1E in that it contained a thermally-detonated explosive charge at the rear of the bomb under the tail, which was usually denoted by the letter Z stamped on the body near the tail. The inability to unscrew the tail due to it being seized combined with the lack of a Z stamped near the tail makes it impossible to positively identify the bomb as either a B1E or B1EZA. The 'R.h.S.' marking on the nosecap indicates manufacture of the nosecap by Rheinmetall-Borsig in Sömmerda.
Please note, due to Postal Regulations. De-activated firearms and Inert Ordnance may not be shipped outside of Canada.
