Nice garage sale find! I've always wanted one, but didn't want to pay the $300 dollars they usually go for. Kid wanted $100 bucks for it, and I gladly paid! (Just paid for his beer and BBQ for today July 4th)
It measures 48 inches long, and is a bit rusty....but this one is special. Normally these practice bombs are stenciled with numbers and Military specks. ...but MY bomb is professionally hand painted as "LAST BOMB PRODUCED" gives the date, and name & address of the manufacturer. Has sat in a garage for 70years, and the fin is pretty rusty....but it's still special to me. At first I was planning on restoring it, until I saw the inscription. ...great find for my collection, and HAS to be worth more than what I paid....especially since it's the "LAST BOMB PRODUCED"
