    Dear all,
    do you think it is a fragment of a 500-pound GP bomb or a missile head or a German bomb known as SC-50??? This was recently found near the town of Tabor in southern part of the Czech Republic, which was attacked on April 24 and 29, 1945 by the Ninth Air Force fighter-bombers.
    Thanks in advance for your help.
    Regards, Filip

    Can you post some dimentions of the item? It could help with its identification.

    Well, this is what I can't do, unfortunately. This picture was taken by police on the spot, no dimensions or other details were given:( But I have asked them to provide them.

    Without getting some relative size to the item, it is almost impossilbe to say exactly what it is.
