INERT German 1kg B1E Incendiary bomb.
The standard German 1kg incendiary bomb dropped on the UK in profusion and the baine of the Civil Defence services. Filled with thermite and made from electron magnesium and intiated by an impact fuze, the I.B. burnt with a fierce heat and intense white light.
This example in excellent condition retaining much of it's original finish with numerous inspection marks etc. Although not dated the waffenampt stamps would indicate a pre/early war manufacture. Would probably disassemble with a little patience and penetrating oil.
