    1936 Elektron Bomb Auction for Treats For Troops

    I have a 1936 German Elektron bomb to auction .....
    for Grayling's/Clifftop's TREATS FOR TROOPS initiative.

    Here.

    I have seen that a similar item has sold for 200, but mine is not totally original due to the tail fin not having any paint on it.

    This item was given to my late Father, but has been in the attic for many years. Whilst it has no sentimental value, I want it to achieve the max value for the above-mentioned initiative.

    I don't know exactly where the bomb was found in Liverpool, but there is no damage to it other than it has been de-fused. [the firing mechanism parts are still in it.]

    Neil has kindly uploaded 2 photos, but I have other pictures detailing serial numbers and other data. I will ask him to upload the others.

    Considering that this item was considered to be consumable , the quaility of workmanship is superb.

    I think that a reserve of 130 is appropriate.

    EDIT: the tail fin is NOT fixed to the body.

    Edit @ 10 Feb: The auction ends 23:00 11 Feb

    Since Eggs on Leggs already put a bid of 50, I'd like to say 60.

    I hope it hasn't got any TNT still in it

    *** Edit: Or Thermite, for that matter
    Glock 19, 43. Two ARs and a few other assorted rifles.

    I don't think EOL has bid 130. Or has he?

    Oh yes I have, but only as long as it is kept secret from my friends that the money is going to a pair of middle aged men who want to use it to by sweeties for young soldiers.

    That was because I offered 50.00 in General, then you put the reserve at 130.00 here.

    I understand now!

    Problem was, I hadn't noticed the new section after returning to the BBS.
