I love to collect interesting and historical pieces!
This is a great find! Found with a metal detector and dug up in the UK, this is a 1942 World War Two anti aircraft missile tip.
Measuring 5.5cm in diameter at its widest points and 4cm at its highest, this small piece of spent war artillery has some weight to it. With visible damage and some remnants of the internal workings, it still has some numbers visible that would have been damaged in battle, but the year of production is clear and visible on one side, bearing an embossed date of 1942; placing this piece within the first half of the Second World War.
A great piece of spent artillery for the collector of war memorabilia, also making a great tactile talking piece, as well as the perfect paperweight for your desk.
