The first picture is one of the earliest bombs. Basically the pilots in WW1 would throw them over the side of the plane and they did a pretty good job.
The trench art says: Argonne Nov 11 1918 Sedan 319 COC and what I think says 7 S B. I kept this particular piece as it is highly likely that it was made by a bored soldier as his souvenir rather than a bought manufactured piece.

    Hi Jason, Interesting. They do not have a place for powder, and I was given to understand that the WWI pilots were given baskets of these to drop over enemy HQ while scouting.
    However, that doesn't mean that I am not wrong. I know, never happens! Thanks for the info. Wonder if any of our military collection folk have an opinion.
    Hmmm...

    Ive forgotten the name for those little projectiles but they were used by both sides. The Axis/German 1's were longer & slimmer. Deadly little buggers. Yours' is allied. Quite common to see at gun shows in the '50's.

    They were called flechettes.
